The Banshee Labyrinth,
Inky Fingers presents...We Are Poets
We Are Poets swept the boards of international film festivals in 2011 and 2012, and Inky Fingers is delighted to bring this extraordinary film to Edinburgh audiences for one night only. We Are Poets follows six Leeds teenagers as they prepare for the world's most prestigious poetry slam - Brave New Voices.
From the red-bricked streets of Northern England to a stage in front of the White House, this is a moving and radical story of youth, art and freedom of expression. This independent film was five years in the making, and the film makers were allowed unprecedented access to the Brave New Voices slam world.
For one night only, this film will be shown in Edinburgh. Book tickets now at http://wearepoetsedinburgh.eventbrite.co.uk
The screening will be followed by a wildcard open mic, running 9.30pm – 11.30pm. Come along, add your name to the hat before or after the film, take your chances for five minutes on the Inky Fingers stage!
Inky Fingers is an Edinburgh based spoken word collective that works to create platforms for people to perform their words, whether poetry, prose, or all the variations in between. Find out more at http://inkyfingersedinburgh.wordpress.com
