Robert Bly: A Thousand Year of Joy
A Film by haydn Reiss

Robert Bly is one of America’s most celebrated poets, easily the most controversial, who has for over a half century crisscrossed the cultural landscape through poetry, translation, activism and social commentary. Best known as the author of the bestseller, Iron John, which launched a million men drumming in the woods, Bly has been celebrated, vilified, but above all persisted in championing the power and importance of poetry in today’s America. The film features a wide range of prominent writers and thinkers who have crossed paths with Bly – Joseph Campbell, Martin Sheen, Jane Hirshfield, John Densmore, Tracy K. Smith, Donald Hall, Mark Rylance, Gary Snyder and many others. (60 mins.) Additional 30 mins of bonus material.
