LOUDER THAN A BOMB at the Lake Worth Playhouse Emerging Cinema TODAY! June 16, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — floridapoetryevents @ 2:10 pm

LOUDER THAN A BOMB chronicles the stereotype-confounding stories of four teams as they prepare for and compete in the 2008  “Louder Than a Bomb” competition, the world’s largest youth poetry slam,. By turns hopeful and heartbreaking, the film captures the tempestuous lives of theseunforgettable kids, exploring the ways writing shapes their world, and viceversa. 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. Watch the trailer at http://www.louderthanabombfilm.com/.

LOUDER THAN A BOMB will be showing at the Lake Worth Playhouse TODAY at 6pm. To purchase tickets or for more information visit: http://www.lakeworthplayhouse.org/
