13th is a 2016 American documentary by director Ava DuVernay. The film explores the “intersection of race, justice, and mass incarceration in the United States;” It is titled after the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. 13th argues that, although slavery was ostensibly abolished in 1865, the Thirteenth Amendment legally embedded and allowed a pernicious form of enslavement in American institutions. This loophole has since been wielded as a devastating political tool in the form of mass incarceration and criminalization.
