Exclusive Columbus engagement!
Steve James, 2011
Join us at the Gateway Film Center (located in the South Campus Gateway, just three blocks to our south) where we program a different exceptional independent or international title for a run of at least two weeks each month. Wexner Center members pay member pricing for all Wex at Gateway screenings—and save on most other movies at Gateway too.
“The Interrupters may be the most necessary film you’ll see this year.”—Slate.com
From the creators of Hoop Dreams, The Interrupters chronicles the inspiring stories of three former gang members who try to protect their Chicago communities from the violence in which they once engaged.
