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.
"...AN AFFECTING AND SUPERBLY PACED CELEBRATION of American youth at their creative best."
"One of the MOST INSPIRING and exhilarating documentaries in years"
Educational Media Reviews Online
"HERE ARE REAL PERFORMERS WITH REAL FEELINGS AND IMPORTANT THINGS TO SAY. America's Got Talent, all right, but maybe we've been looking for it in the wrong places."
"LOUDER THAN A BOMB KNOCKS YOU OUT WITH ITS PASSION AND STRENGTH, even as it leaves you feeling hopeful about a younger generation that, from all media depictions, is obsessed with Internet first-person-shooter video games, YouTube, and celebrity news. Oh yeah, and it's a movie about poetry."
