Summary The Interrupters tells the moving and surprising stories of three Violence Interrupters who try to protect their Chicago communities from the violence they once employed. Shot over the course of a year, The Interrupters captures a period in Chicago when it became a national symbol for the violence in our cities. Synopsis: The Interrupters follows three individuals who with bravado, humility and even humor work to protect their Chicago communities from the violence they once employed. From acclaimed director Steve James and bestselling author Alex Kotlowitz, this is an intimate journey into the stubborn persistence of violence in our cities. Shot over the course of the year, The Interrupters follows these individuals - two men and a woman -- as they intervene in disputes before they turn violent.
