"William Stafford & Robert Bly: A Literary Friendship"
This extraordinary hour-long film documents the intimate friendship between two of America's greatest poets, both National Book Award winners and peace activists - William Stafford and Robert Bly. Before his death in 1993 Stafford, a uniquely eloquent conscientious objector during WW 11, published 65 books of poetry and prose, and won the Western States Lifetime Achievement Award. Robert Bly has already given us thirty books of his poems, prose and translations from many languages. The author of Iron John, co-founder of American Writers Against the Vietnam War, leader of the Mythopoetic Men's Movement, and a popular teacher at the annual Great Mother Conferences, Bly has long
provided a desperately needed spiritual depth to contemporary American poetry.  

In documenting the creative friendship of Bly and Stafford, and then following it with this new film on younger writers' responses to Stafford, Haydn Reiss has crafted two visionary testaments to the sacred power of peace.  KPFA Radio was founded 60 years specifically to promote peace.
