Film: ROBERT BLY: A THOUSAND YEARS OF JOY
Poet Robert Bly stands out even among the celebrated, revolutionary generation of American artists who burst forth in the 1950s; A Thousand Years of Joy charts Blys singular path from farmers son on a wintry Minnesota farm to radical anti-Vietnam War activist to wild man of the 1990s mens movement. The bespectacled, white-haired Bly is every inch the politically and spiritually engaged mystic, seeking each moments fervid heart as well as the eternal, intuitive bedrock beneath our cultivated ideologies and personas. He was one of the first to translate Pablo Neruda, Rumi and other ecstatic Sufi poets, and his work with Joseph Campbellexploring the metaphorical, psychological terrain of myth and ritualled to the unexpected pop culture phenomenon of Iron John. A confounding whirling dervish, Blys life embodies the quest for personal honesty and shared truth.

Filmed over four years in five states and two countries, the film features Louise Erdrich, Jeff Gordinier, Donald Hall, Edward Hirsch, Jane Hirshfield, Garrison Keillor, James Lenfestey, Philip Levine, Michael Meade, Mark Rylance, Martin Shaw, Martin Sheen, Gary Snyder, Tracy K. Smith, Gioia Timpanelli, Lewis Hyde, Martin Prechtel, Roger Bonair-Agard, and other luminaries from the world of culture.
