Movie Info

MSU alumnus Eric Sorotkin produces this alternately inspirational and unnerving look at the injustice committed against an Albuquerque, New Mexico poetry teacher, and the artistic community that subsequently rose to his defense. March, 2003: Bombs were dropping in Iraq, and Rio Rancho poetry teacher Bill Nevins was encouraging his students to speak out. Almost immediately, Nevins was fired and the poetry team he created disbanded. Days later, peaceful protestors in the area are brutally assaulted by police while attempting to voice their opposition to the war. From the flames of this fire rose the Poetic Justice Movement, a diverse community of artists, poets, and musicians devoted to justice, free speech, and hope. This is the story of the Poetic Justice Movement, and the brave souls who formed it despite repeated attempts by the powers that be to marginalize their valiant efforts.
