Greater Englewood Welcomes Louder Than a Bomb!!

LOUDER THAN A BOMB chronicles the stereotype-confounding stories of four teams as they prepare for and compete in the 2008 event. By turns hopeful and heartbreaking, the film captures the tempestuous lives of these unforgettable kids, exploring the ways writing shapes their world, and vice versa. 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.

Through the grassroot project Docs & Dialogue, Greater Englewood will get a sneak peak Saturday, February 26th at KKC Black Box Theatre located at 740 W. 63rd Street at 3pm.  Space is limited must RSVP at or at 773-744-8849!

The "Docs & Dialogue" series is a grass root project created by residents of the Englewood community. The series was developed because many of the "safe spaces" in the community are closed on Saturdays.

Residents decided to create this monthly series that showcase documentaries that entail some shock value. Each of the "shockumentaries" viewed at the past events focused on culture, hip hop, entertainment, community, history and then is followed up with a candid dialogue amongst the attendees.  The series was designed for the youth; however, the community as a whole as fully embraced this powerful project!
