This Friday, February 8th, 7:00 p.m., Visual Arts is sponsoring a free screening of The Interrupters in ITE 201 as part of the REACT TO FILM college screening program (watch trailer). The Interrupters, an official Sundance selection, tells the moving and surprising stories of three Violence Interrupters who try to protect their Chicago communities from the violence they once employed.
