Committing Poetry in Times of War is a poetic glance at a community's response to the suspension and firing of teachers who supported their students' rights to speak out on the Iraq war and the subsequent police brutality that ensued, forcefully moving peaceful protestors at gunpoint into free speech zones. The very fabric of the Constitution was crumbling, yet out of this fire arose a diverse community of musicians and poets.
With its blood pounding slam poetry uniting a community in support of our fundamental freedoms, this documentary is a testament to our collective creative spirit, representing a path toward transformation and hope.
