Trailer For Youth Poetry Slam Documentary “Louder Than A Bomb”

Directed by Greg Jacobs and Jon Siskel, and opening in theaters on May 18th is the documentary Louder Than a Bomb, which tells the story of four Chicago high school poetry teams as they prepare to compete in the world’s largest youth slam. Both hopeful and heartbreaking, the film captures the lives of these kids, exploring the ways writing shapes their world, and viceversa.

After its May 18th opening at the IFC Center here in New York City, the film, which has already screened at 20 or so festivals to critical acclaim and audience appreciation all over the country, will be released in a national theatrical roll-out.

Also worth noting, Louder Than a Bomb has been selected for the “OWN Documentary Club,” a new monthly documentary series on Oprah Winfrey’s new cable network! It’ll air there in the coming weeks, likely after its theatrical release, so you’re encouraged to stay tuned for more dates and more information!

The film’s website has a list of all its upcoming screening dates, leading up to its theatrical release, so you can click HERE to go THERE and see if it’ll be coming to your city sooner than you think.
