Documentary filmmaker Eugene Jarecki has become something of a war reporter.

His acclaimed film, "Why We Fight," examined the origins and consequences of the so-called military industrial complex. His new film, "The House I Live In," turns a lens on a different sort of war, America's war on drugs.

In a sprawling narrative that weaves together history and personal stories, Jarecki brings us a penetrating look at the decades-long battle against drugs.
