    Bringing the Origins of Prisons to the Big Screen

    Ava DuVernay, the director who brought you OWN Network’s Queen Sugar series and the Oscar-winning film Selma is about to drop a documentary on the history of prison system. With the nationwide prisoner strike entering its fourth week still getting very little mainstream media attention, DuVernay’s new project is developing a bit of anticipation. The film is called The 13th, and it’s named after the 13th Amendment of the US Constitution, which abolished slavery except as punishment for a crime. The 13th was the first-ever doc to open the New York Film Festival on Friday, September 30 and will be up on Netflix and select theaters October 7.
