The film traces Thomas’ path from childhood to manhood in New York City’s Spanish Harlem, El Barrio, from the 1930s through the 1960s; his parents’ immigrant experience, home life during the Great Depression, his membership in barrio youth gangs, his struggle to come to terms with his mixed-racial identity, his travels as a teen-age merchant marine, his heroin addiction, his notorious armed robbery of a Greenwich Village nightclub, his six years spent in prison, and then his emergence as a writer. Thomas’ coming-of-age story is counter-pointed with verité scenes of his on-going work of forty-five years as an educator and activist empowering marginalized and incarcerated youths. A stylized, genre-spanning production, \u003cb\u003eEVERY CHILD IS BORN A POET\u003c\/b\u003e is a riveting portrait of a life lived through struggle, self-discovery, and transformation as it examines Thomas’ use of creative expression as a means of confronting poverty, racism, violence and isolation.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e \u003ciframe src=\"http:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/36172897\" allowfullscreen=\"allowfullscreen\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"375\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003cdiv align=\"center\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"Trailer Button\" --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003cnoscript\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: rgb(0, 0, 0);\" data-mce-style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: rgb(255, 255, 255);\" data-mce-style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003e\n \u0026amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;div class=\"bodytxt\"\u0026amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;\u0026amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"Awards\" --\u0026amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;\n \u0026amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;div align=\"center\"\u0026amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;\u0026amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;\/div\u0026amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;\n\u0026amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u0026amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;\u0026amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;\/div\u0026amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;\n \u0026amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;div class=\"bodytxt\"\u0026amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;\u0026amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"quotes\" --\u0026amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;\n \u0026amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;p\u0026amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;\"...The fresh, new American documentary Piri Thomas is a delicious, surprising and funny portrait of an author.

The film traces Thomas’ path from childhood to manhood in New York City’s Spanish Harlem, El Barrio, from the 1930s through the 1960s; his parents’ immigrant experience, home life during the Great Depression, his membership in barrio youth gangs, his struggle to come to terms with his mixed-racial identity, his travels as a teen-age merchant marine, his heroin addiction, his notorious armed robbery of a Greenwich Village nightclub, his six years spent in prison, and then his emergence as a writer.
