4:00 pmAmerica’s Sunday Supper - Documentary Screening Zamora's Market
In anticipation of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, everyone is encouraged to bring their dinner to the Ratt for a film screening and discussion of "The Interrupters." "The Interrupters" tells the stories of three violence interrupters who try to protect their Chicago communities from the violence they once employed. Shot over the course of a year, the film captures a period in Chicago when it became a national symbol for the violence in our cities. During that period, the city was besieged by high-profile incidents, most notably the brutal beating of Derrion Albert, a high school student, whose death was caught on videotape. The film's main subjects work for CeaseFire, an organization which believes that the spread of violence mimics the spread of infectious diseases, and so the treatment should be similar--go after the most infected. Discussion will follow after the film, presented by the Office of Intercultural Life and Civic Engagement Office.
