ITVS Presents a Social Screening of The Interrupters

ITVS presents an online social screening of Steve James’ The Interrupters on Thursday, May 31 at 11AM PT / 2PM ET. The event will take place here.

From acclaimed producer-director Steve James (Hoop Dreams) and best-selling author-turned-producer Alex Kotlowitz (There Are No Children Here),  The Interrupters tells the stories of three “violence interrupters” who, with bravado, humility, and even humor, try to protect their Chicago communities from the violence they themselves once employed.

Join us for the first hour of The Interrupters with a real time panel of special guests, who will be taking part in the screening to talk about the themes of the film and take your questions live. You may continue to watch the The Interrupters after the panel ends here. Continue reading
