“A pop culture phenomenon!” – Robert Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
“Devlin’s fast-paced editing make SlamNation an exciting and entertaining film.” – The Boston Phoenix
SlamNation is the seminal documentary on slam poetry, popularizing an entire literary/performance movement. Theatrically distributed in 30 cities, SlamNation led to coverage of slam poetry by CNN, 60 Minutes, and inspired many follow-up films as well as the HBO series Def Poetry Jam.
I edited both the feature-length film and this trailer.
