“Brisk and invigorating.”
The Washington Post

“Emotionally powerful and technically innovative.”

“What SLAM possesses is real passion, and that is in short supply in movies these days.”
The New York Times

From rapper/writer Saul Williams (NEPTUNE FROST), SLAM is a gripping cinematic experience that delves into the raw realities of urban life and the transformative power of words. Set against the backdrop of Washington, D.C., we follow the journey of a young poet navigating the challenges of the justice system. Now newly restored, with a compelling mix of poetry, rhythm, and social commentary. Free Member Monday—free admission for all AFS members on March 18.
