Movie Mom

I’m delighted that the brilliant documentary “Louder than a Bomb,” from director Jon Siskel, will be broadcast tonight on Oprah’s OWN network at 9/8 Central.  Every family with teenagers and everyone who loves words should be sure to tune in.  “Louder Than A Bomb” goes behind the scenes as four Chicago high school teams compete in the Chicago area teen poetry slam. Hopeful and heartbreaking, the film captures the young poets’ hopes, obstacles, and longing for a way to tell their stories and the way the very act of turing their stories into poetry transforms their world.  The result is electrifying and inspiring. Highly recommended.
