About this event:
In partnership with the Chicago Public Library and the Chicago Tribune Foundation, the Gene Siskel Film Center presents selections from the Best of the Black Harvest Film Festival.
The Interrupters tells the moving and surprising stories of three Violence Interrupters who try to protect their Chicago communities from the violence they once employed. This film is an unusually intimate journey into the stubborn persistence of violence in our cities.
(2011, Steve James & Alex Kotlowitz, DVD projection, 125 min.)
