Filmmaker Eugene Jarecki focuses on America's war on drugs in his documentary in competition at the Sundance Film Festival.
Jarecki examines the social, human and financial costs of drug policies in "The House I Live In."
Jarecki says he was moved to explore the issue because, while his parents escaped persecution in Nazi Germany, he sees another kind of Holocaust taking place in poor communities targeted by drug laws and mandatory minimum sentences.
In an interview in Park City, Utah, Jarecki criticized the criminal justice system for its targeting and sentencing of non-violent drug addicts.
The Sundance Film Festival continues through Sunday.
