Steve James and Alex Kotlowitz Talk The Interrupters (Video)

Hoop Dreams director Steve James and There Are No Children Here author Alex Kotlowitz stopped by The Interview Show, hosted by Mark Bazer at The Hideout, to talk about their new documentary, The Interrupters.

The film opens in NYC July 29 at IFC Center and runs through Aug. 4. It's the story of CeaseFire -- in particular, three people who work for the organization trying to mediate disputes, help individuals turn away from violence and, in general, be a support system for Chicagoans hoping to build more peaceful communities.
