Kartemquin is proud to announce two groundbreaking new documentaries, currently in development in Chicago.
The Interrupters, directed/produced by Steve James (Hoop Dreams, No Crossover: The Trial of Allen Iverson) and produced/written by acclaimed journalist Alex Kotlowitz (There Are No Children Here, Never a City So Real), tells the story of a group of men and women, many of them former gang leaders, who now work for the group CeaseFire and risk their lives by intervening in violent situations across the city of Chicago.
Also, Kartemquin's first ever Diversity Fellow, Usama Alshaibi, is developing American Arab, (working title) a feature-length documentary.
