Raising Bertie, a new film from debut director Margaret Byrne and Kartemquin Films, will world premiere at Full Frame Documentary Festival in Durham, North Carolina at 4:30pm on Saturday, April 9, 2016.
General admission tickets for this Center Frame screening in the Carolina Theater's 1,014-seat Fletcher Hall sold out within thirty minutes of going on sale on Friday April 1.
Malcolm X College screens The Interrupters and a panel discussion on the film will be held afterwards. Ameena Mathews, one of the Interrupters working with Ceasefire, will attend.
The Interrupters presents unforgettable profiles in courage, as three former street
criminals in Chicago place themselves in the line of fire to protect their communities.
The two-hour film follows the lives of these “Violence Interrupters,” who include the
charismatic daughter of one of the city’s most notorious former gang leaders, the son
of a murdered father, and a man haunted by a killing he committed as a teenager. As
they intervene in disputes to prevent violence, they reveal their own inspired journeys
of struggle and redemption.
Light refreshments will be provided. Admission is free.
