Our Season Opener


Louder Than a Bomb features four Chicago high school poetry teams as they prepare for and compete in the world's largest youth poetry slam. By turns hopeful and heartbreaking, the film captures their tempestuous lives, exploring the ways writing shapes their world, and vice versa. Louder Than a Bomb is about language as a joyful release, irrepressibly talented teenagers obsessed with making words dance, and the communities they create along the way.

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.

Running Time: 99 Minutes Not Rated

Please note: The Australian Short NULLARBOR (10 Minutes) will be shown prior to LOUDER THAN A BOMB.
