“Going Up the Stairs” starts 6:30 p.m.
The film is a warm, revealing and often surprisingly funny portrait of an unlikely artist. Akram is an illiterate, 50-year-old Iranian woman who unexpectedly became a painter when her young grandson asked her for help with a drawing.
That simple moment tapped into an explosion of powerful, primitive and colorful paintings, which she hid from disapproving eyes. When invited to exhibit in Paris, she is at the mercy of her conservative husband: Will he let her go showcase her raw talent or give in to his sense of tradition and keep her home?
“The Interrupters” starts 7:45 p.m.
It tells the moving and surprising story of three dedicated individuals who try to protect their Chicago communities from the violence they themselves once employed. These “violence interrupters” (their job title) — who have credibility on the street because of their own personal histories — intervene in conflicts before the incidents explode into violence. Their work and their insights are influenced by their own journeys, each of which defies easy characterization.
