If you follow Brave New Films you already know that the United States locks up more people than any other country on Earth. And you know that the 40-year-old War on Drugs has done nothing to decrease drug addiction.
But did you know your race determines your chances of going to prison? That the incarceration of women is on the rise? Or that there’s a pipeline that sucks kids in from school and deposits them behind bars at alarming rates?
That’s why Brave New Films has just released a playlist of short motion graphics that challenges your assumptions about mass incarceration.
