For the past decade, New York-based director Eugene Jarecki has been making engaging and smart documentaries about some of the most thorny political and social issues in America. With MTV quickness and PBS intelligence, the films tell epic stories about where public polices intersect with personal lives. His most recent, produced by a dynamic duo of Danny Glover and Brad Pitt, The House I Live In, reaches far—both in terms of history and geographic scope—to tell the story about the human toll America's war on drugs has taken. 6 pm, Tuesday, Jan. 21, Volcanic Theatre, 70 SW Century Drive. $5.
