We are Poets presents a timely and radical exploration of youth, language and education, as a remarkable team of six British teenagers are chosen to represent the UK at Brave New Voices: the most prestigious Poetry Slam competition in the world. From their inner city lives on the red bricked backstreets of North England, to a stage in front of the White House in Washington DC, the young poets explosively lay bare the concerns of the multi ethnic noughties generation, and prepare for a transformational journey of a lifetime.

Cinematic, imaginative and uniquely honest, We are Poets is a moving testament to the power of creativity, community and the dynamism of young people. Anyone tempted to dismiss today’s youth as politically apathetic better pay heed: here is electrifying evidence to the contrary.
