AMERICAN JAIL: A Film That Exposes Modern “Legalized” Slavery In America

In this provocative and personal film, Academy Award-winning director Roger Ross Williams explores the forces that fuel America’s sprawling prison system.

About the 13 Amendment’s exception that permits slavery and involuntary servitude under government management, Williams says, “the 13th Amendment redefined the parameters of slavery…this clause has allowed Americans to continue to enslave Black people and poor people for over 150 years”.

Note: This is not the full copy of the film but all we could find presently.
