In a program from August of 2011, Andrew talks with Steve James (Hoop Dreams, Kartemquin Films), Alex Kotlowitz (There Are No Children Here), and Cobe Williams (the CeaseFire project) about their acclaimed documentary, The Interrupters.

Made in Chicago, the film looks at the efforts of a remarkable group of those formerly in trouble with the law to work to bring the cycle of violence in the inner city to a halt.
