“Interrupters” in Arlington
I just got the word that The Interrupters will be screening tomorrow (Friday) evening at 7pm at Unity Church at 3525 S Bowen Rd, Arlington. I mentioned Steve James’ film when I sorted out my list of the best documentary films of last year. I had it ranked lower than a lot of people did; I do think the movie was somewhat overrated by the fact that it took on an Important Subject. Yet it’s still compelling stuff about former gang members who now work to stop inner-city violence in Chicago. It’s well worth seeking out.
