Maryland Film Festival and Open Society Institute Present THE HOUSE I LIVE IN on 10/9 with Director Eugene Jarecki, Judge Andre Davis and an introduction by David Simon!

Maryland Film Festival, in collaboration with The Open Society Institute, is thrilled to announce a special screening of Eugene Jarecki‘s  THE HOUSE I LIVE IN with special guests Eugene Jarecki and Judge Andre Davis (U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit) on October 9th, 7:00pm, at the Charles Theater.  David Simon, creator of The Wire, will be introducing the film.

Shot in more than twenty states, THE HOUSE I LIVE IN tells the stories of individuals at all levels of America’s War on Drugs.  From the dealer to the narcotics officer, the inmate to the federal judge, the film offers a penetrating look inside America’s criminal justice system, revealing the profound human rights implications of U.S. drug policy.

THE HOUSE I LIVE IN with special guests Eugene Jarecki and Judge Andre Davis  with an introduction by David Simon
Tuesday, October 9th
7:00pm
The Charles Theater, 1711 N. Charles St.

This screening is free for all; however, priority for seats will be given to current Friends of the Festival. 

Jarecki doesn’t minimize the real damage that drug use inflicts on individuals, families, and communities, but he forcefully concludes that the so-called cure has had far more damaging effects on our society. The film leaves the possibility for change up to us rather than our governmental officials, who regularly have to talk “tough on crime” to win elections. I’d hate to imply that it’s your civic duty to see “The House I Live In” when it’s eventually released to theaters, but guess what — it is.
