ABOUT THE FILM:
As America remains embroiled in overseas conflict, a less visible war is taking place at home, costing countless lives, destroying families, and inflicting untold damage on future generations of Americans.

For over forty years, the War on Drugs has accounted for 45 million arrests, made America the world's largest jailer, and damaged poor communities at home and abroad. Yet for all that, drugs are cheaper, purer, and more available today than ever before.

Filmed in more than twenty states and shortlisted for the 2013 Academy Award for Best Documentary, "The House I Live" In captures heart- wrenching stories at all levels of America's drug war - from the dealer to the grieving mother, the narcotics officer to the senator, the inmate to the federal judge. Together, these stories pose urgent questions: What caused the war? What perpetuates it? And what can be done to stop it?

FOR MORE INFORMATION, call 619-232-2121 or email. Check out the film's website: thehouseilivein.org. This is the first time this important film will be shown in San Diego.
