Dear Friends of Casket Cinema,

Casket Cinema gets literary with our next film, “Robert Bly: A Thousand Years of Joy”. This thoughtful and lovely documentary is a biopic of one of MN’s most loved poets. It was a crowd pleaser at the at the Minneapolis International Film Fest.  The video covers a lot of ground to show us the life of Bly, from a young man breaking out as an activist poet in the 1960’s, to his days as a well known translator to his time galvanizing the men’s movement of the 80's & 90's.

Special guests for this Casket will be MN producer of the film, Dominic Howes and the artist Dougie Padilla, who knew Bly well in the men’s movement. They will talk with Casket Cinema Co-founder Mark Wojahn after the film.  

Thursday, December 1st, Doors at 7:30pm, film at 8pm, discussion follows.
