      BWP Press, Los Angeles, CA.....Filmmaker Bob Bryan has proudly
      unveiled his seventh powerful installment in his multi award-winning
      Documentary Series entitled GV7 RANDOM URBAN STATIC: The Iridescent
      Equations of SPOKEN WORD. He is releasing two (2) versions: An
      Unofficially Rated G Version for General Audiences, Schools and
      Libraries and the Original unedited version for those who do not mind
      some "raw street vernacular." Both versions will have a Running time
      of 2 hours.

      Released under his BRYAN WORLD PRODUCTIONS indie label, GV7 returns
      to the enigmatic world of Poetry. This time around he gets the
      perspectives of fifteen (15) uniquely talented poets involved in the
      world of SPOKEN WORD. From Grand Slam Champions to Open-Mic Veterans,
      GV7 crosses all philosophical, racial, and social lines to become the
      quintinessial SPOKEN WORD documentary of the new millennium.

      Bob Bryans' last documentary GV6 THE ODYSSEY explored the pov of 31
      contemporary Literary Page Poets and de facto AMERICA'S Number # 1
      Indie Produced Poetry Documentary. Bob is very very confident that
      poetic magic will strike again with GV7 his new feature-length foray
      into the uncompromising world of SPOKEN WORD.

      "GV6 THE ODYSSEY deals with those Poets who write words for the page,
      while GV7 RANDOM URBAN STATIC probes the reality of those Poets that
      write for the stage. SPOKEN WORD has really connected with today's'
      youth, primarily because it speaks intimately to their love for
      performance art, passion, subjective psycho / social issues and
      cultural attitudes about the world in which they live. Poetry is an
      invaluable tool and artform that helps them to unravel, clarify, and
      articulate their experiences. Of course, Hip-hop has allot to do with
      the flavoring of this SPOKEN WORD communication paradigm."

      "I was thrilled to be able to get the Poets to honestly decode and
      discuss their ambitious hopes & desires, as well as their deep
      personal disappointments and frustrations with the current state of
      hip-hop. While not all the poets shared a deep abiding love for hip-
      hop in its current incarnation; many of the Poets feel that Hip-hop
      has the potential to be a positive catalyst for massive social
      change. They feel that it has been severely underdeveloped and in
      some cases perversely denigrated by some of its commercial
      practitioners. p

      "Concurrently other poets in GV7 openly discuss issues of date-rape,
      the courage to be an artist, the psychological repression of women,
      How Hip-hop can help or Hurt, HIV-AIDS & homosexuality, image vs.
      reality, obsessions, race-consciousness, anorexia, self-love, the
      high-jacking of black men's masculinity, disappointment with God,
      insanity, self-loathing, inspiration and salvation. Noone can say
      these poets tread lightly or try to avoid issues that we all in some
      way or another grapple with. It's what makes this expression so
      relative, " says Filmmaker Bob Bryan.

      Sure, the dialogue can be ruff, confrontational and passionate; but
      their intentions are real. These artists are desperately trying to
      get through to you!

      "Your voice is your power;
      don't ever let anyone take away your voice."

      --Two Time Grand Slam Champion Bridget Gray.

      "If you don't cut deep…you
      don't make a difference."

      Mollie Angelheart, Co - Los Angeles Slam Champion.

      "What you say, may just save
      my life."

      Time Grand Slam Champion Poet Sekou (tha misfit)

      It is a commitment with vast transformational possibilities &
      connection between the poet, the audience, and the unrealized future.

      men's strength & redemption lies in their vulnerability.

      Tim'm. T. West, Poet, Author, Educator
