Every year in Chicago, some 600 students from 60 area schools compete in "Louder Than a Bomb," the largest youth poetry-slam competition in the world.

That competition, and the teens who find their voices by writing and performing their words, is the subject of the documentary "Louder Than a Bomb," which screens Tuesday, Feb. 7, in Salt Lake City.
