by Paul Simpson
Alex Kotlowitz, The Interrupters
The Academic Enrichment Center and Graduate School of Social Work will welcome author Alex Kotlowitz back to Dominican for a screening and post-film discussion of The Interrupters

The screening, which is free and open to the public, will be held on Tuesday, November 13, at 6 p.m. To accommodate increased demand for seats, this event has been moved from its original location in the Martin Recital Hall to the Lund Auditorium. 

The film, which Kotlowitz co-produced, tells the story of Chicago activists working to prevent the spread of street violence through peaceful confrontation and supportive dialogue. 

After the screening, Kotlowitz will be joined by GSSW Dean Charlie Stoops and  Cure Violence National Community Coordinator, Cobe Williams, for a conversation with the audience. 

Refreshments and cookies will be provided in the Slate Lobby at 5:30, shortly before the screening. 

Seating is limited and RSVP is required. Register at  dom.edu/communities/film_register.html​.

Have a question you would like to ask Mr. Kotlowitz or Williams about The Interrupters during or after the film?  

You can Tweet your questions using the hashtag #DUInterrupters and we'll ask as many of them as we can during our discussion.

This event is part of a special two-day engagement on campus abou the topic of curing violence. A GSSW panel discussion featuring other stars of the film and an expert panel of other organizations involved with stopping violence in Chicago will speak.
