Description

Director Haydn Reiss Attending

In Competition: Minnesota Made Documentary Feature

Poet Robert Bly stands out even among the celebrated, revolutionary generation of American artists who burst forth in the 1950s. This richly drawn biography charts Bly’s singular path from farmer’s son on a wintry Minnesota farm to radical anti-Vietnam War activist to wild man of the 1990’s men’s movement. Filmed over four years in five states and two countries, the film features a host of his contemporaries, friends and admirers. Come see the story behind Minnesota’s most famous poet in Haydn Reiss’ lively and entertaining documentary.
