This was a commissioned mid-length documentary film for the Toronto Public Library. After our proposal was selected by the RFP committee, we spent a little over one year following several youth groups who were participating in a flagship program launched by the Library called “Poetry Saved Our Lives” or PSOL. It was a humbling and inspiring experience to say the least. We met some incredible young artists and poets, who had a lot to say. Our documentary is hopefully a testament to this talent, and can help shed more light on the incredible talents in the young people of this city and of course all across the world.
Enjoy the trailer below and please feel free to share! We are hoping to work with the library and some of the youth still involved with the program to create a sequel to this documentary to be filmed in 2017-2018.
