PYPM presents the premiere of its first full-length feature documentary, “Blackout.” The documentary follows the journey of how six youth poets grew into a team and then into a family and won a world championship.
This is the story of the 2015 PYPM Youth Slam Team – who placed #1 in the world – after winning the Brave New Voices International Youth Poetry Slam. You’ll hear both poems performed at the competition and exclusive unheard poems.
PYPM became three-time world champions that year, prompting the Philly Inquirer to call us a “poetic dynasty.”
Following each screening, we’ll hold a panel discussion with the 2015 PYPM team, coaches, and documentary producer (Corey McDonough).
Time: The Blackout Documentary premieres on Friday, May 26. The screening will begin at 4:30 PM. Movie run-time is 1 hour and 40 minutes.
*All proceeds go toward funding the 2017 PYPM Slam Team at BNV this summer.
