Poets from many nations (the U.S., Britain, Colombia, Nigeria, India, Iraq) and various eras rail against man's most unpoetic activity - war - in this humanistic document that combines images from American conflicts of the past 150 years with eloquent words about war's horror and devastation. Writers range from soldier-poets like Wilfred Owen and Randall Jarrell to Cameron Penny, a 12-year-old Michigan boy, and include Homer, Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, and Langston Hughes. "The words more than hold their own against the pictures." -Washington Post. Cleveland theatrical premiere. 35mm. 74 min
