Each year, more than six hundred teenagers from over sixty Chicago area schools gather together for the world’s largest poetry slam, a competition known as “Louder than a Bomb.” During the 2008 event, filmmakers Jon Siskel and Greg Jacobs chronicled the stereotype-confounding stories of four teams as they prepared for and competed in the poetry slam. The documentary they produced, Louder than a Bomb,was chosen as the Audience Favorite for the 2011 Palm Springs International Film Festival, and as well, won awards at festivals in St. Louis, Philadelphia, and Austin, among many other cities.
