Virgil Films & Entertainment has added documentary filmmaker Eugene Jarecki’s 2012 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize winner for best Documentary, The House I Live In, to its July 2 DVD release slate (already in place on that date is writer/director David Riker’s The Girl).
The ARR is 270 days and the box office take for this theatrically-released documentary on the “war on drugs” was a nice $210,752.
Jarecki points out that after 40 years and 45 million arrests since President Nixon declared a state of war existed with illicit drug trafficking little has changed … the war rages on. Perhaps, he argues, the time has come to rethink the problem.
