Sheffield-based filmmakers Alex Ramseyer-Bache and Daniel Lucchesi follow the group as they get ready for the event that could change their lives forever. Carefully crafted sequences illuminated by lyrics, mashed up with raw documentary, ‘We Are Poets’ challenges the stereotype of the apathetic young person.
“Lyrical, inspirational and ultra-cool…a brilliant story and a milestone in breaking down stereotypes.” – I-D Magazine
‘We Are Poets’ reveals a thunderous stage where politically-charged literature is the norm and words are mightier than swords.
“From its utterly brilliant opening, through to its moving finale, ‘We Are Poets’ is inspirational!” – Sheffield Doc Fest
