Abramorama sets date for ‘House’

Jarecki's drug docu set for release on Oct. 5

Eugene Jarecki’s drug documentary “The House I Live In” has been set for release on Oct. 5.

The pic won the documentary grand jury prize at Sundance in January.

Abramorama, headed by Richard Abramowitz, will release the film theatrically across the country, followed by a digital release via Snag Films.

“House” is produced by Jarecki and Melinda Shopsin and exec produced by Danny Glover, Nick Fraser, John Legend, Russell Simmons and Sally Jo Fifer. It is a co-production of the BBC, Arte and ITVS and was filmed in more than 20 states.

42West, PR Collaborative and Acme PR will develop and manage the publicity campaign while Bond Strategy and Influence run the digital marketing campaign. Cinetic Media is handling North American rights, and Dogwoof is handling international distribution.

Film’s grassroots outreach campaign has been supported by the Ford Foundation and RiverStyx Foundation.

“The time to end the drug war has come,” Jarecki said. “And we feel hopeful that with the film’s release and in tandem with partner organizations working at the grassroots level across the country, the film can contribute to the decades-long struggle to end this heartbreaking and misguided chapter of American history and find a better way forward.”
