The 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution abolished slavery. But it also included a provision many people don't know about and that is what this documentary brings to view.
"Powerful, infuriating and at times overwhelming, Ava DuVernay's documentary "13TH" will get your blood boiling and tear ducts leaking. It shakes you up, but it also challenges your ideas about the intersection of race, justice and mass incarceration in the United States, subject matter that could not sound less cinematic. Yet Ms. DuVernay - best known for "Selma," and a filmmaker whose art has become increasingly inseparable from her activism - has made a movie that's as timely as the latest Black Lives Matter protest and the approaching presidential election.
The movie hinges on the 13th Amendment, as the title indicates, in ways that may be surprising"
The New York Times
(The program will be conducted in English)
