The Interrupters tells the moving and surprising stories of three Violence Interrupters who try to protect their Chicago communities from the violence they once employed. Louder Than A Bomb 2012 presents this free screening of the award-winning documentary followed by a talkback.
The largest of its kind in the world, Louder Than a Bomb (LTAB) is the city’s rapidly-growing teen poetry festival. Aiming to bring teens together across racial, gang, and socio-economic lines, LTAB is a friendly competition that emphasizes self-expression and community via poetry, oral story-telling, and hip-hop spoken word.
