PBS has been on their game this month. Along with airing documentaries about black historical figures like Daisy Bates, they’ve also shown critically-acclaimed films that shine a light on areas we rarely see.
Last night, Frontline, aired the network premiere of the Steve James and Alex Kotlowitz film, The Interrupters.
If you haven’t seen The Interrupters, you are missing out.
The film follows a group of workers from CeaseFire, a Chicago-based violence prevention group that aims to stem the rising tide of homicides in the city.
The film is haunting. moving, and extremely inspiring and it was one of the best films I’ve seen in a while.
If you missed last night’s broadcast, luckily PBS is sharing the entire film on their website (and I’m embedding it here for you). It is definitely worth the watch.
Watch, “The Interrupters” and share your thoughts.
