The Word's Out (Two Part Spoken Word Documentary)

  • Joe Bond

The love child of poetry and rap, Spoken Word is becoming an increasingly popular facet for young adults to express themselves. With an surplus of rising talent, who turn their feelings into well-crafted works of art, Spoken Word poets use their skills to provide commentary on topics ranging from relationships to racism. At times sharing the most personal details of their lives, with packed out audiences. This two part documentary follows Jojo Tizard as she looks into the art of Spoken Word, examining the community it creates and the way the medium is used as a cathartic process for many of its poets.
