To Be Heard

This fascinating documentary film explores the struggles and triumphs of three inner city teens as they strive to use their gift of language to rise above daily struggles. Words can be very powerful, they can build you up as well as break you down. This film focuses on the positive aspects of writing and artistic expression at a South Bronx school but also delves into the sometimes not-so-pretty aspects of poverty and single parent homes. To Be Heard is a “must-see” film. Check out the film trailer. You may find this and other great documentaries in the Film and Sound Department at Richland Library.
