“The 13th” from director Ava DuVernay takes a look at the Constitution’s 13th Amendment.

“This film was made as an answer to my own questions about how and why we have become the most incarcerated nation in the world, how and why we regard some of our citizens as innately criminal, and how and why good people allow this injustice to happen generation after generation,” DuVernay said in a press release.

“The 13th” will open NYFF54 on September 30 before it debuts on Netflix on October 7. The New York Film Festival will run from Sept 30-Oct 16.
