A Mic. A Stage. A Pen. A Page.
Louder Than A Bomb chronicles the stereotype-confounding stories of four teams as they prepare for and compete in the 2008 event. By turns hopeful and heartbreaking, the film captures the tempestuous lives of these unforgettable kids, exploring the ways writing shapes their world, and vice versa. This is not "high school poetry" as we often think of it. This is language as a joyful release, irrepressibly talented teenagers obsessed with making words dance. How and why they do it—and the community they create along the way—is the story at the heart of this inspiring film.
Louder Than a Bomb is honored to be the recipient of the 2011 Humanitas Prize for Documentaries. The Humanitas Prizes celebrate films and TV shows that are both entertaining and uplifting and reveal our common humanity.
This OWN Documentary Club film premieres Thursday, January 5, 9/8c.
