Critically-acclaimed Documentary on how in-depth look at the United States prison system reveals the nation's history of racial inequality!

Filmmaker Ava DuVernay explores the history of racial inequality in the United States, focusing on the fact that the nation's prisons are disproportionately filled with African-Americans. In this thought-provoking documentary, scholars, activists and politicians analyze the criminalization of African Americans and the U.S. prison boom.

The movie is frankly exhausting, with too much information (and too many brilliant interviewees) to do justice to here. You simply need to see it. - Vulture

When you watch "13TH," you feel that you're seeing an essential dimension of America with new vision. That's what a cathartically clear-eyed work of documentary art can do. - Variety

In this fierce call to action, director Ava DuVernay effectively doubles down on both educating her viewers and inspiring them to take a stand against racial injustice in 2016 America. - Common Sense Media

DuVernay has molded her doc into a living history of slavery as an institution that won't quit. - Rolling Stone

Directed by Ava DuVernay Starring Melina Abdullah, Michelle Alexander, Cory Booker
