Event Details

The fourth in Indy Film Fest's Spring Film Series, The Interrupters has been lauded by critics and audiences alike since its premiere and throughout its release. From the director of Hoop Dreams, this captivating story of the change that's possible one person at a time is the only documentary featured in the Spring Film Series.

About the film: THE INTERRUPTERS tells the moving and surprising story of three dedicated individuals who try to protect their Chicago communities from the violence they, themselves once employed. These “violence interrupters” (their job title) – who have credibility on the street  because of their own personal histories – intervene in conflicts before the incidents explode into violence. Their work and their insights are informed by their own journeys, which, as each of them point out, defy easy characterization.  documentary / dir. Steve James / USA 2011 / Color / 144 min / in English

"A sobering but not hopeless look at how the Windy City is attempting to turn around a rising tide of street shooting, through the work of a unique group called CeaseFire."
-Peter Howell, Toronto Star

"It tears at your heart with its depiction of the intractability of the problem. But it simultaneously insists, and makes you believe, that change is possible one person at a time."
-Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times

"The Interrupters, a documentary about an initiative to stop urban violence in Chicago, may be the most necessary film you'll see this year."
-Dana Stevens, Slate
