Synopsis

Executive produced by Golden Globe winner James Franco, Bradley Coley’s documentary debut follows poet and Episcopal priest Spencer Reece to San Pedro Sula where, thanks to a Fulbright grant, he will teach poetry and English at Our Little Roses, the only girls’ orphanage in the country. At first the girls see no value in poetry, but they eventually come around, finding their voices as they use literature as a vehicle to express their fears and hopes. “Voices Beyond the Wall” is a beautiful, intimate and inspiring ode to the power of literature.

Bajo la producción ejecutiva del recién ganador del Globo de Oro James Franco, el primer largometraje de Bradley Coley sigue al poeta y sacerdote episcopal Spencer Reece a San Pedro Sula donde, gracias a una beca Fulbright, enseñará poesía e inglés en Our Little Roses, el único orfanato de niñas en el país. Al principio, las chicas no ven ningún valor en la poesía, pero al final recapacitan y encuentran su voz, usando la literatura como vehículo para expresar sus miedos y esperanzas. “Voices Beyond the Wall” es una hermosa, íntima e inspiradora oda al poder de la literatura.
