Poetry slam – an underground movement has become a mass phenomenon. The process and rules of a poetry slam have changed almost nothing since its creation more than 30 years ago. Those who visit a poetry slam are fascinated by the sometimes profound or rousing lyrics of the slammers, who do not shy away from letting the audience take a look inside. Slammer and organizers provide insights into controversies and turning points in the film, which helped make the scene spread in clubs, lecture theaters, and ever-larger halls.
