Romeo is Bleeding

D: Jason Zeldes | USA | 93 min | Regional Premiere

A fatal turf war between neighborhoods haunts the city of Richmond, CA.

Donté Clark transcends the violence in his hometown by writing poetry about his

experiences. Using his voice to inspire those around him, he and the like­-minded

youth of the city mount an urban adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet,

with the hope of starting genuine dialogue about violence in the city. Spoken-word poetry and Shakespeare create powerful synergy.
