★★★★☆  – Highly Recommended!

Explores the history of racial inequality and the reasons behind the enormous number of incarcerations in the United States.

Runtime: 1h 40min 
Genre: Documentary

 ’13th’  is an elegantly restrained, historical documentation of racial inequality, spanning the decades, all the way from slavery to the current racial climate in the United States.

No doubt an essential film, ’13th’ also succeeds in educating the masses and exposes the laws that blatantly disregard human rights held in place by flawed judicial systems, corrupt politicians and greedy corporations.

I’m not a politically inclined person nor am I an American, but the film is absolutely infuriating as you are left with the knowledge that systematic racism on such a calculated scale still exists in this day and age.
