Director Steve James (‘The Interrupters,’ ‘Hoop Dreams’)


Hoop Dreams might very well be the most acclaimed documentary of the 1990s, but its co-director, Chicago-based documentarian Steve James, has continued to create distinctive, relevant films in the near-20 year interval since that film’s release. His latest, The Interrupters, screened at Cinema Politica here in Montreal and so impressed the SOSers who witnessed it that we made sure to request a screener, with the express purpose of putting a James spotlight together – and now, with the help of special guests Derek Gladu and Michael Waldman, we finally got ‘er done.
