15 Year Anniversary Screening of Slam

Movie night
Please note: This event has already occurred.
Fifteen years ago, documentary director Marc Levin brought a film called “Slam” to Sundance. “Slam,” which tells the story of a budding poet from a gritty part of D.C. who discovers his calling while incarcerated in Lorton, walked away with the festival’s Grand Jury Prize. Outside of theaters, “Slam” helped spark renewed interest in slam poetry. This week, three of D.C.’s top poets -- KoM, Ra Brown and E-Baby -- will honor the film’s legacy by appearing at a special anniversary event at Marvin. The trio will perform before a free screening of “Slam,” and members of the cast and crew will discuss the film during a Q&A session.
