We Are Poets

image_fixwidth

We Are Poets is a documentary by Alex Ramseyer-Bache and Daniel Lucchesi, that tells the story of the Leeds Young Authors poets who represented Leeds, Yorkshire and the UK at the Brave New Voices (BNV) International Poetry & Literature Festival in Washington DC in 2009.

LYA first took part in BNV in 2004 (the first non-American group invited to do so) and in 2009 our team placed second in the whole poetry Slam competition – an outstanding achievement considering Leeds was then only one of three teams from outside the USA.

The documentary premiered at Europe’s largest Documentary Film festival – Doc/Fest in Sheffield’s Showroom Cinema on 11 June 2011, where it won the prestigious Sheffield Youth Jury Award. It has since screened locally and internationally at numerous festivals and events.
