Vice TV Looks at CeaseFire During Chicago’s Violent Summer

A new web documentary delves anew into the city’s violence-prevention organization, following Ameena Matthews as a dispute over money turns ugly, then violent.

On the heels of The Interrupters and Chicago’s violent summer, Vice TV takes a look at CeaseFire, part of the city’s long game on crime. The first episode focuses on Ameena Matthews, a CeaseFire interrupter, daughter of Jeff Fort, and as in the Kartemquin doc, an incredibly compelling presence (via Chicagoist).
