About the Movie
From Executive Producer Russell Simmons and Director Jason Zeldes, comes an award-winning documentary following Donté Clark, a young poet transcending the violence in his hometown by writing about his experiences. Growing up in Richmond, CA, a city haunted by a turf war, Donté and the like-minded youth of the city mount an urban adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet with the hope of starting a dialogue about violence in the city. Will Richmond crush Donté's idealism? Or will Donté end Richmond’s cycle of trauma?
Very good movie
An incredible journey of emotion and struggle
There is just something special about this film. The story is an unique one, but also one that echos in cities all across the U.S. and worldwide. Donté is an incredible character who decides to use his position in the community to teach the youth of his city to pick up the pen instead of the pistol. His personal story will make you cry but also hopeful for the future when you witness the power these kids have in their voices. A must see, as clearly demonstrated by the fact of the film's 20+ festival award wins.
