Executive Produced by Cinquest Maverick Spirit recipient Rosario Dawson, 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.
