We’re back with an all-new episode and a discussion of two films about gun violence in America.
This week’s new release, Chi-Raq, is a modern adaptation of the ancient Greek play Lysistrata and centers on gang violence in Chicago. We discuss writer/director Spike Lee’s newest alongside Steve James’ 2011 documentary The Interrupters, which follows a group of violence interrupters protecting their Chicago community from the seemingly inescapable violence.
