IT'S ABOUT POETRY.
Every year, more than 600 teenagers from Chicago-area schools gather for the world’s largest youth poetry slam, a competition known as "Louder Than A Bomb." Rather than emphasize individual poets and performances, the structure of Louder Than a Bomb demands that teens work collaboratively with their peers, presenting, critiquing, and rewriting their pieces. The documentary follows four teams as they prepare for and compete in the event, exploring the ways in which writing expresses their world.
