The lives of 25 young poets in Los Angeles intersect throughout one summer day in this compelling and thought-provoking film from director Carlos López Estrada (Raya and the Lost Dragon). A couple work through their marital woes. A young man reflects on the family that rejected him while searching for the best burger in town. A young woman confronts a past crush that wronged her. Two rappers go from selling CDs on the street to performing a sell-out concert. These stories and more weave seamlessly to create a punchy and deeply personal contemporary narrative, bringing the city of Los Angeles to life.

Showcasing some of the best up and coming spoken word artists in America, these diverse stories of community and identity form the heart of this compelling and thought-provoking film.

"'Summertime' expresses familiar sentiments in some fresh and vital ways, and keeps the dreams alive." - Chicago Tribune

"On paper, it sounds iffy; in execution, however, it's absolutely glorious, a gleeful glide through adolescence." -
