P.E.N.S. "LIVE" - Vol. 1.2
Amid Houston’s museums, historic landmarks, and vibrant nightlife exists a cache of the nation’s most prolific spoken word artists. Their words are etched in the very fabric of H-town. Their story, once the city’s best-kept secret, will finally be told.
P.E.N.S. (Poetic Energy Needed in Society), a powerful award-winning documentary created by Carlos Wallace, C.E.O. of Sol-Caritas, L.L.C, and Mikell “Fetti” Limbrick, founder of Irise Filmz, traces the origins of Houston’s spoken word scene. Stories of struggle, social justice, feminism, and race relations, resonate throughout the film. The award-winning narrative is expertly presented through the pens of Houston Poets.
