Before Russell Simmons' highly acclaimed HBO series Def Poetry Jam, SLAMNATION captured the cutthroat world of spoken-word poetry with an "energy that pulses, snaps and crackles" (Chicago Tribune).

"Frenetically High-Powered!
Verbally akin to stripping naked!"
-- Stephen Holden, The New York Times

Over 200 performance poets journey to the National Poetry Slam to compete in this verbal slugfest. New York's novice dream team of Saul Williams (Slam), Beau Sia (Def Poety Jam on Broadway), muMs the Schemer (HBO's OZ) and Jessica Care Moore (Showtime at the Apollo) are pitted against the ruthlessly competitive Taylor Mali (HBO's Def Poetry Jam) in 4 days of elimination bouts culminating in a rousing, sold-out final showdown.

SlamNation's release in theaters across the US and on HBO/Cinemax, helped popularize the dynamic genre of slam poetry, which has recently been featured in a Tony Award-winning Broadway show and an HBO original series.

"Wildly entertaining! This film should find its way into the classroom. A year's worth of dry lectures can't touch this experience!" --Robert W. Butler, The Kansas City Star

With the 91-minute film, special DVD features include "Special Play" mode that allows viewing of complete, uncut versions of all poems during the movie; Filmmaker Commentary with slam founder Marc Smith and slam champ Taylor Mali; Uncensored Bonus Poems; Deleted Scenes; Filmmaker Biography; Poet Biographies; Theatrical Trailer; Interactive Menus; and Scene Selection.

SPECIAL BONUS DISC: includes the original, Emmy-nominated Slammin' TV Pilot; 15 extra bonus poems, 4 extra deleted scenes.
