The title of Ava DuVernay’s extraordinary and galvanizing documentary
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 within the United States.”

X

X

The progression from that second qualifying clause
to the horrors of mass criminalization
and the sprawling American prison industry
is laid out by DuVernay with bracing lucidity.

X

With a potent mixture of archival footage
and testimony from a dazzling array of activists,
politicians, historians, and formerly incarcerated women and men,

DuVernay creates a work of grand historical synthesis.
