From acclaimed director Eugene Jarecki, and executive producers Danny Glover, John Legend and Russell Simmons comes the riveting new documentary, The House I Live In.

Filmed in more than twenty states, the film tells the stories of individuals at all levels of America’s so-called "War on Drugs," looking at this war from several key POVs.

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.

It sounds almost like Traffic, the documentary version.

The feature doc (4 years in the making) premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last year, where it reportedly caused quite a stir, polarizing audiences, en route to winnng the Grand Jury Prize in its category, and continued to play the international film festival circuit.

It's scheduled to debut on PBS' Independent Lens series this season, Monday, April 8, 2013, 10:00-11:30 p.m. ET.

However, before that, it'll be released on January 15 on iTunes, Amazon Instant View, Movies On Demand, YouTube Rentals, XBOX, Play Station, Cinemanow and Vudu.
