The Interrupters is playing at a/perture in Winston-Salem on October 26th and 27th.  I highly recommend this film directed by Steve James, who is well-known in documentary circles for making insightful films on a variety of topics.  This time James looks at a violence prevention program that is working in some of Chicago’s toughest neighborhoods.  The film is hard to watch at times but very moving.  It’s hard to think of anything that could be more powerful than a story of violence and redemption.  The Interrupters is an important story for our times and engrossing to watch.
