“13th” was the opening film at the 2016 New York Film Festival.
The director Ava DuVernay begins by pointing out that 25% of those incarcerated in the world are imprisoned in the U.S. and contends that maintaining such a system amounts to perpetuating slavery.
It is a thought-provoking documentary in which scholars, activists and politicians analyse the criminalisation of African Americans and the U.S. prison boom.
