Aro Recommended Interrupters, The


USA 2011, 125 minutes
Dir. Steve James
Rating: [Exempt]
Genres: Documentary / Sociology

Topics: African-American, Indigenous & Minority Cultures.


Aroview: Another grim, yet by turns inspiring social documentary from dir. Steve James (HOOP DREAMS), who expands his chronicle of urban African-American youth by focusing on the epidemic of gang violence on the streets Chicago.

Centred specifically on the Ceasefire program run by ex-gang members and cons whose responsibility is to step in and 'interrupt' (often petty) grievances escalating into full-blown retaliation, this features many hard-hitting stories of senseless violence and tragic loss, through is tempered by the raw determination and bravery of its subjects to 'break and cycle'.
