The Interrupters won BEST DOCUMENTARY at the Independent Spirit Awards. It is easy to see why. The Interrupters takes the viewer on an intimate and uncomfortable journey through extremely dangerous gang territory.  The documentary is shot through the eyes of those trying to sow peace and security in the area.

Director Steve James and Producer Alex Kotlowitz bring you THE INTERRUPTERS: those trying to take back the streets.

The interrupters first aired on FRONTLINE on February 14th and follows three brave souls who, with gusto and humor, try to take back a dangerous part of Chicago; a violence which can be partially traced back to their own actions.

The interrupters is a documentary about urban violence, the causes, and the cure.

This documentary was produced by PBS and is part of DocumentaryStorm’s initiative to bring you documentaries the moment after they are released.
