Editorial Reviews

From ancient Babylonia and the fields of Troy to the great conflicts of the 20th century "Voices in Wartie" sharply etches the experience of war through powerful images and the words of poets - unknown and world-famous. Soldiers journalists historians and experts on combat interviewed in "Voices in Wartime" add diverse perspectives on war's effects on soldiers civilians and society. Poets around the world from the United States and Colombia to Britain and Nigeria to Iraq and India share their views and experiences of war that extend beyond national borders and into the depths of the human soul.The stirring words of poets of the past - Homer Wilfred Owen Siegfried Sassoon Emily Dickinson Langston Hughes Walt Whitman and Shoda Shinoe from Hiroshima are combined with more recent voices: a Vietnam vet poets in war-torn Baghdad a poet whose family experienced the devastating war in Biafra in the late 1960's. "Voices in Wartime" distills the grim realities of war and its poetry helps us understand the trauma violence and death caused by armed conflict.System Requirements:Running Time: 74 minutesFormat: DVD MOVIE Genre: DOCUMENTARIES/MISC.

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on October 3, 2005
Format: DVD
VOICES IN WARTIME is a documentary that has many aspects: it is an important investigation into how poets have responded to war from the Civil War through the two World Wars, Korean and Vietnam Wars and it is an homage to the fallen and to those who have been permanently damaged by war's dissection of the psyche, whether that be called combat fatigue, shell shock, battle rattle or the now accepted term Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. One has only to read the works of Walt Whitman, Wilfred Owen, Siegfried Sassoon, Langston Hughes to find the core of this deeply moving project and film.

Filmmaker Rick King has created a platform for which poets and commentators, scholars and photographers and explores the close relationship between anti-war protest and the poetry that has grown out of such feelings. This film is not a compendium of works praising Old Glory or making the world safe for democracy: this is a conversation among poets and their works with newsreel footage and stills of the wars of our past and present, thoughts that descry the atrocities of war and the rage it invokes. It is difficult to watch, but it is important to absorb. This is the portal through which author Sam Hamill is seen organizing the activist group, Poets Against the War. And the impact is strong.

Not all of the poetry read is great and much of it comes from the pens of the untrained. But all of the works and voices and images in King's film cannot help but touch the heart and the conscience. It needs to be seen. Grady Harp, October 05
