3 - An acclaimed feature doc titled Louder Than A Bomb, follows the more than six hundred teenagers from over sixty Chicago area schools, who gather every year for the world’s largest youth poetry slam, a competition known as “Louder Than a Bomb." 

Founded in 2001, "Louder Than a Bomb" is a youth poetry slam built around teams, rather than emphasize individual poets and performances, essentially demanding that the kids work collaboratively with their peers, presenting, critiquing, and rewriting their pieces.

Winner of 17 film festival prizes, including ten audience awards, and hailed as one of the ten best documentaries of 2011 by Roger Ebert, the film, chronicles the "stereotype-confounding" stories of four teams as they prepare for and compete in the 2008 event.

Greg Jacobs and Jon Siskel, of the Chicago-based production team Siskel/Jacobs Productions, are the film’s producers and directors.
