Filmed in more than twenty states, THE HOUSE I LIVE IN tells the stories of individuals at all levels of America’s War on Drugs.

"Eugene Jarecki’s incisive and incendiary The House I Live In, which won the U.S. documentary Grand Jury Prize at Sundance and might win next year’s doc Oscar, will blow your mind." - Anne Thompson, INDIEWIRE
"A ballsy mix of interviews and editorializing that’s daring enough to question a costly crackdown that has long had the public’s support. This essential-viewing docu-essay…should spark considerable press attention, which can only benefit the pic’s theatrical prospects." - Peter DeBruge, VARIETY
"A potent cry for a drastic rethinking of America’s War on Drugs, Eugene Jarecki’s The House I Live In… should connect solidly with viewers at a moment when it seems possible to change public attitudes." -John DeFore, HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
"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." - Ty Burr, BOSTON GLOBE
"Mr. Jarecki has a methodological gift for transforming boatloads of information into both political arguments and eminently watchable narratives." - Manohla Dargis, THE NEW YORK TIMES
