The new, award-winning Irish documentary Broken Song opens this week - we're giving you the chance to watch an exclusive clip.

The synopsis for Broken Song reads: "GI, Costello and Willa Lee are street poets, hip-hop artists and songwriters from north Dublin. For these young men self-expression in the form of poetry, rap and song has become a spiritual experience. Their aim is simply to articulate the chaos that surrounds them and to fight it with their words and voices alone. Along the way it has become their identity, their religion and, as they claim themselves, they are its high priests.

"In the end, the place where they live and their words are one and the same, constantly in flux, full of darkness and light. It is proof that these suburbs - that have bred darkness, murder and hate - have also inspired poetry and these unlikely artists are using words alone to fight back."

The Claire Dix-directed Broken Song opens at the Irish Film Institute on November 15 and axis, Ballymun on November 27.
