Steve James Brings his Docs to USC & BYOD

This Friday, Steve James will present a special screening of The Interrupters at the University of Southern California's School of Cinematic Arts, followed by discussion with USC alum Shaft director John Singleton, and The Interrupters stars Ameena Matthews and Eddie Bocanegra. The event is now sold out. Tomorrow, Steve will also present Stevie at USC SCA (get more info & RSVP).

But if you can't attend, perhaps an online video interview of Steve James by award-winning documentary filmmaker Ondi Timoner (Dig! and We Live in Public) will help compensate!

Watch the in-depth interview from Bring Your Own Doc below to see Steve discuss his career in documentary, covering films such as Stevie, Hoop Dreams, and The New Americans, plus in-progress projects like Generation Food and the Roger Ebert project.
