13th documentary- the truth behind the incarceration epidemic

Netflix might release plenty of entertaining content from its coffers but their recent forays into documentary material have been just an engaging and much more eye-opening.

Their next feature lengthed doc is called 13TH after that numbered Amendment of the American constitution. The film uses that at a jumping off point to examine how a new form of slavery has infected the black community ever since, in the growing epidemic of institutional incarceration and a systemic fear which has is maintained by the media.

Here's a trailer.

It looks like strong material and comes from director Ana DuVernay, who most recently released the critically acclaimed Selma. The film was made in secret and was only recently officially announced. After screening at the New York Film Festival it will be on Netflix on the 7th of October, 2016.
