I recently saw the documentary The Interrupters to review for Muslimah Media Watch. The film follows three violence interrupters in Chicago for a year. It’s a powerful film, as it presents the effects of violence in communities and looks at how it can be prevented through working with people who are well-acquainted with the culture.
My review looks at the portrayal of one of the interrupters in the film-Ameena Matthews. You can read the entire review at Muslimah Media Watch.
