1/23/12: Sundance - The House I Live In

Park City, UT – On Monday, Doug talks with documentary filmmaker Eugene Jarecki. In his film Why We Fight, Jarecki examined America's war machine. His new documentary, The House I Live In, scrutinizes another unique expression of American conflict by telling the stories of individuals at all levels of our war on drugs. The drug war has made America the world's largest jailer even as narcotics of all kinds have become purer, cheaper and more available. Where did we go wrong, and what, can be done about it?

The House I Live In premiers on Saturday, January 21, at 6:00 p.m. at the Temple Theatre in Park City; at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, January 22, at the Egyptian Theatre in Park City; at 6:45 p.m. at the Broadway Center Cinemas in Salt Lake City on Monday, January 23. For more show times, visit the Sundance Film Festival web site.

Thanks to The Christan Center of Park City, our hosts for the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.
