First Look: Ava DuVernay Explores The US Prison System & Culture With The 13th (Trailer)

What you see on the news is a story 150 years in the making.” Netflix has debuted the first trailer for the documentary title The 13th, or just 13th, directed by film maker Ava DuVernay in secret over the last few years. It presents an in-depth look at the prison system and how it reveals the nation’s history of racial inequality. The title refers to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which reads: “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist.” This looks like it’s going to be hard-hitting and provocative, and hopefully will cause changes. DuVernary commented that “this film was made as an answer to my own questions about how and why we have become the most incarcerated nation in the world, how and why we regard some of our citizens as innately criminal, and how and why good people allow this injustice to happen generation after generation.”
