Following three students in the Bronx as they take a Power Writing poetry class, To Be Heard explores the value of empowerment through expression. Directed and produced by Deborah Shaffer and Roland Legiardi-Laura , this documentary demonstrates the power of literacy in the face of adversity and the support system Karina Sanchez, Pearl Quick, and Anthony Pittman develop. Dealing with less than desirable home/life situations, the students' very survival relies on their abilities to cope with abuse, violence, and rejection. ~ Rachel Sprovtsoff, Rovi, Rovi
