Louder Than a Bomb

Release Date: May 18, 2011 (limited)
Studio: Balcony Releasing
Director: Greg Jacobs, Jon Siskel
Screenwriter: Not Available
Starring: Not Available
Genre: Documentary

Plot Summary: "Louder Than a Bomb" tells the story of four Chicago high school poetry teams as they prepare to compete in the world's largest youth slam. By turns hopeful and heartbreaking, the film captures the turbulent lives of these unforgettable kids, exploring the ways writing shapes their world, and vice versa. "Louder Than a Bomb" is not about "high school poetry" as we often think of it. It's about language as a joyful release, irrepressibly talented teenagers obsessed with making words dance. While the topics they tackle are often deeply personal, what they put into their poems-and what they get out of them-is universal: the defining work of finding one's voice.
