Look and See: A Portrait of Wendell Berry screening

September 28, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

- $10

Watch a cinematic portrait of the changing landscapes and shifting values of rural America in the era of industrial agriculture, as seen through the mind’s eye of renowned writer, farmer, and activist, Wendell Berry.

The first documentary about Berry, one of America’s most significant living writers, Look and See was filmed in and around the rolling hills of Henry County, Kentucky – where Berry has lived and farmed since the mid-1960’s.

Filmmaker Laura Dunn skillfully weaves Berry’s poetic and prescient words with gorgeous cinematography and the testimonies of his family and neighbors, all of whom are being deeply affected by the industrial and economic changes to their agrarian way of life.

Dave Carter, Executive Director of The National Bison Association, will introduce the film.
