The Interrupters

This resource is described as "An intimate journey across the violent landscape of our cities through the eyes of those fighting to sow peace and security." The video is almost two hours long and is available in a graphic version as well as a broadcast version. There are also individual interviews with the participants as well as links to other videos and articles. In a review of the film Slate’s Dana Stevens called it “the most necessary film of the year”. "This is also one of the most engaging films you’ll see this year, full of vibrant, complex real-life characters whose troubles and joys will stay with you long after the movie’s done.”
