Don’t Be Nice at 3:30pm
Directed by Max Powers
Don’t Be Nice tells the compelling story of a team of young New York City Slam Poets that finds its voice as it prepares and competes for the National Championship during the summer of 2016.
An emotional and inspiring film that gives insightful commentary on race, gender, identity, and sexual politics in America today. Don’t Be Nice is both an absorbing competition doc and a vital writer’s workshop that movingly proves that winning hearts and minds is the ultimate prize.
