Festival of Human Rights x Arts Presents: Our Words Collide
Join us for the Canadian premiere of Our Words Collide followed by a special Q&A.
Our Words Collide is a feature documentary following the lives of five teenage spoken word poets in Los Angeles. A coming of age story, the film documents the poets as they navigate their final year of high school, exploring many of the challenges facing young people today – including identity and expression, transitioning into adulthood and overcoming mental health issues – through the unique prism of their poetry.
The film highlights the poets of the Get Lit program – a non-profit organization in Los Angeles educating and empowering young people through poetry.
