Watch video of Ameena Matthews' superb interview on The Colbert Report from yesterday. The star of The Interrupters did a great job of keeping her cool amid Stephen Colbert's own interruptions, getting the CeaseFire message across and dropping brilliant quips such as "I wasn't lecturing them, I was having a conversation with them" and "I would like to say I am a paper-sack brown blood cell."
The Interrupters will have its US television premiere on PBS FRONTLINE at 9pm on February 14th 2012. The US DVD and digital versions of the film will be made available following the broadcast.
PBS announced the air date as it unveiled its broadcast schedule for Black History Month 2012. We're hoping you will all help spread the love by watching and telling us what you think!
