The best documentary I saw last year is airing on Frontline tomorrow evening. The Interrupters was directed by Steve James (Hoop Dreams) and produced by Alex Kotlowitz (There Are No Children Here) and shows the heroic work of three different “violence interrupters” in Chicago. Check your local listings and be sure to see this film.
The marketing folks for an intriguing documentary emailed me recently with an offer to attend an upcoming screening of Thunder Soul. The film is about the Kashmere High School Stage Band in Houston and it’s legendary leader. Learn more and view the trailer on the website.
