The 2011 Milwaukee Film Festival will include a tribute to Kartemquin Films, a Chicago-based non-profit documentary group. Kartemquin celebrates 45 years of pursuing social justice through films like The Interrupters, the recent festival sensation examining violence in Chicago.

Several key subjects of the film will join director Steve James for the Saturday, September 24 screening at the Landmark Oriental Theatre.

The tribute also includes the Milwaukee premiere of Kartemquin's newest film centered on dancer/choreographer Bill T. Jones, A Good Man, as well as a presentation of their landmark 1994 documentary Hoop Dreams, and a preview of in-progress film American Arab.

“We’re thrilled to be collaborating with the Milwaukee Film Festival to bring a wide array of our work to Wisconsin audiences,” said Justine Nagan, Kartemquin Films’ Executive Director. “The panels and films that they selected show the breadth and history of our work, as well as some of our exciting new projects. Kartemquin is happy to be partnering with another strong midwestern film institution to bring people together and create meaningful dialogue and discussion around media.”
