Cobe Williams, CeaseFire Chicago violence interrupter (featured in the film) will introduce the screening and answer questions after the screening. Christian Davenport, Professor of Peace Studies, Political Science and Sociology will lead a post-screening discussion.
The moving and surprising stories of three Violence Interrupters (activists who aim to protect their Chicago communities from the violence they once employed) come together in the latest film from acclaimed documentarian Steve James (Hoop Dreams). Shot over the course of a year, The Interrupters follows the work of an innovative organization, CeaseFire, which seeks to minimize violence in Chicago by addressing the problem at its source.
