Steve James

Back in June, Chicago's Kartemquin Films invited Adam to host a live, career-spanning conversation with documentary filmmaker Steve James ("Hoop Dreams" "The Interrupters" "Life Itself" ). This excerpt from that talk covers the James early life growing up in Hampton, VA, and his films STEVIE (2002) and AT THE DEATH HOUSE DOOR (2008) and the James-produced PBS series about immigration THE NEW AMERICANS (2004).
