Voices in Wartime

I have seen clips from the documentary, due out this April, and it is stunning. (The info below is from the Voices in Wartime website.)

Voices in Wartime is a feature-length documentary that delves into the experience of war through powerful images and the words of poets – unknown and world-famous. Poets around the world, from the United States and Colombia to Britain and Nigeria to Iraq and India, share their poetry and experiences of war. Soldiers, journalists, historians and experts on combat interviewed in Voices in Wartime add diverse perspectives on war’s effects on soldiers, civilians and society.

You can join the effort to help millions of people learn about post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other consequences of war by hosting a House Party for Voices in Wartime.

I plan to host a House Party . . . but it might be a somewhat serious & somber affair.
