"Every War Has Two Losers": The Film about Poet and Conscientious Objector William Stafford

Please order this short film for your library (your at-home library, and your public/academic libraries); it's a great resource to teach Stafford's work, and its relationship to pacifism. I got to see the first cut at the Stafford Symposium in 2009, and was moved by it, even though I already knew the story. Director Haydn Reiss makes smart use of Stafford's notebook selections from Every War Has Two Losers, the book version.
