Opening of the Heart!

I received this announcement from John Fox and the Institute for Poetic Medicine today. I watched the trailer. It is chilling. Check it out.

You're invited to view a film that looks at the trauma of war with poetry, Voices in Wartime. This film will be broadcast on TV-both nationally and in Washington DC, nationally on Link TV - available from DIRECTV® satellite Channel 375 and Echostar DISH® Network satellite Channel 9410,

Monday, April 10 5:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

Watch an online (2 minute trailer and 12 minute short ) at www.openingoftheheart.org

Listen to or download poems from the film (Ipod, mp3) at www.openingoftheheart.org

New York Times: "an elegant statement not only about the devastation of war but also about poetry's power to amaze."

TV Guide: "filled with some of the most powerful poetry and shattering images ever to come out of warfare" and "required viewing."
