Each year, RadioWest sits down for in-depth conversations with filmmakers and producers during the Sundance Film Festival. Just like the festival, the RadioWest team has eclectic taste. We hope you enjoy the diversity of topics as much as we do.
Sundance 2012: The House I Live In
On Monday, Doug talks with documentary filmmaker Eugene Jarecki. In his film Why We Fight, Jarecki examined America's war machine. His new documentary, The House I Live In, scrutinizes another unique expression of American conflict by telling the stories of individuals at all levels of our war on drugs. The drug war has made America the world's largest jailer even as narcotics of all kinds have become purer, cheaper and more available. Where did we go wrong, and what, can be done about it?
- The House I Live In premiers on Saturday, January 21, at 6:00 p.m. at the Temple Theatre in Park City; at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, January 22, at the Egyptian Theatre in Park City; at 6:45 p.m. at the Broadway Center Cinemas in Salt Lake City on Monday, January 23.
