SnagFilms Snags The House I Live In

The House I Live InSnagFilms has acquired the North American distribution rights to the Sundance Film Festival’s Grand Jury Prize winner, The House I Live In. Directed by Eugene Jarecki (Why We Fight, Reagan), the documentary examines America’s war on drugs. “From the dealer to the narcotics officer, the inmate to the federal judge, the film offers a penetrating look inside America’s criminal justice system, revealing the profound human rights implications of U.S. drug policy.”
SnagFilms also just picked up Beware of Mr. Baker, the 2012 SXSW Film Festival Grand Jury Award winner. Beware of Mr. Baker tells the story of Ginger Baker, a drummer who worked with artists such as Eric Clapton in Cream and Blind Faith and is considered to be one of the world’s best drummers. “This controversial and unforgettable musician reflects back on his life along with interviews with Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, Steve Winwood, Charlie Watts, Max Weinberg and many more.”
“We’ve heard a lot about Dream Teams recently,” said Rick Allen, SnagFilms CEO. “But the year’s top two documentary winners, plus six time-honored titles, constitute the Doc Dream Team. We are honored to be bringing them to wide audiences.”
