Customer Review

on August 9, 2013
I found this documentary absolutely riveting. As you'll have gathered from previous reviews, it follows the stories of three members of CeaseFire, an organization made up largely of former gang members who now dedicate themselves to trying to defuse or mediate conflict in their Chicago neighbourhoods before it erupts into violence. In addition to trying to interrupt potential violence in the moment, these "violence interrupters" also take on the less dramatic but perhaps even more important long-term work of acting as mentors and support people to youth at risk and ex-offenders. (One of the most memorable scenes in the film shows an interrupter accompanying a young man recently released from prison as he goes with trepidation to offer an apology to staff of the small business that he had held up at gunpoint.) Powerful, gut-wrenching, and deeply inspiring.
