MORE WORDS OF OUR SUPPORTERS!

"I am indebted to Robert’s poetic vision and spirit and I am grateful this film is being made." - Roger

"As he did with Rumi, Haydn is offering us deep sweet time with one of history’s great soul sharers. Hurrah!" - Robert

"Robert’s gravel voice, his clear eyes, his huge listening heart have deepened my life and my work immensely. I am proud to know him and support this film. It is news worthy of the universe." - Jenny

"I just had the privilege of speaking with the director of this film on Robert Bly. His understanding of the “elements of importance” of Bly’s cultural and artistic contributions to our time is thought provoking. I will eagerly await its release." - Shelley

"Thank you, Robert Bly, forever! Thank you, Haydn, for making this crucial film." - Michael

"Jim Parker and the other ‘Men from Maine’ had the honor of meeting Robert Bly at the MN men’s conferences. We are honored to support the film about a man who has impacted the lives of so many of us and our society. We are better for it." - Howard
