The Interrupters

"Every City Needs Its Heroes"

A film by Steve James and Alex Kotlowitz

The award-winning Kartemquin Films documentary about violence prevention was the Chicago movie of 2011. In this stirring and powerfully insightful year-long journey through Chicago's inner city, director/producer Steve James (HOOP DREAMS) and author-turned-producer Alex Kotlowitz (There Are No Children Here) follow three courageous "violence interrupters" working for the innovative organization CeaseFire, as they patrol the city's meanest streets to defuse scenarios of heart-stopping volatility.

Date: Friday, August 24th
