The Interrupters

Friday, July 29 - Thursday, September 22, 2011

From the director of Hoop Dreams and the author of There Are No Children Here, THE INTERRUPTERS is a gripping portrait of modern-day heroes. In Chicago’s CeaseFire organization, reformed gang members protect their community from harm through a unique, dangerous and controversial method—by insinuating themselves personally into conflicts. Using lessons from their own complicated pasts, they gain access and credibility within stricken neighborhoods, forming personal bonds to break the deadly cycle of violence.
