INCARCERATING US

 

SYNOPSIS

The United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world. Over 2 million Americans are currently in prison, many for nonviolent offenses. This staggering fact carries enormous human and economic costs, sparking debates among policy experts and ordinary citizens: When should the state have the authority to take away an individual's freedom? Incarcerating US presents a compelling argument that the criminal justice system needs urgent reform. The film is an important tool for influential social action partners.


 
 
 
Essential viewing for anyone who cares about America and our collective humanity.
