Netflix Releases Ava DuVernay's 13TH Trailer

Today, Netflix debuted the trailer and key art for 13TH. Directed and produced by Ava DuVernay, 13TH explores how mass incarceration evolved to its current epic proportions and what the ramifications are for communities of color across the country.

13TH will premiere at the New York Film Festival on Friday, September 30, which is the first time a nonfiction work will open the festival. The film will launch globally on Netflix October 7, including a limited theatrical release.

Synopsis

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..." 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. 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.
