On January 15th, OVEE will host an online screening of The Interrupters to commemorate the three-year anniversary of the film’s release and to celebrate the film’s impact. This special screening, produced in partnership between by Frontline and ITVS’s Women and Girls Lead and Diverse Muslim Voices Campaign, will be accompanied by a panel discussion with Interrupter Ameena Mathews and the film’s outreach specialist, Anton Seals.

The Women and Girls Lead Campaign highlights documentary films that showcase women leaders working to improve their communities. You can learn more about it on the ITVS website here: http://www.itvs.org/women-and-girls-lead

The Diverse Muslim Voices Campaign works to build understanding and awareness in the US of Muslim culture through open dialogue and educational events. Learn more about the campaign here: http://itvs.org/series/diverse-muslim-voices

Fans of The Interrupters will get a behind-the-scenes update from the film’s heroine, and newcomers will experience the documentary in a newly engaging way. While interacting with viewers via live chat, Ameena Matthews will share her insights into social justice, community leadership, and religious identity. This timing coincides with the launch of Interrupt Violence, a transmedia community project inspired by the film that comprises educational outreach tools aimed at reducing the corrosive persistence of violence in American cities.
