Look & See: A Portrait of Wendell Berry
LOOK AND SEE is 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 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.
LOOK & SEE will be shown at the Fairfield Theater Company and tickets are only $5.00. Refreshments will be provided by Patagonia Provisions, Fleishers Craft Butchery, Cross Culture Kombucha and Fairfield Cheese Company, with beer samples provided by Black Hog Brewing. A discussion will follow, and all proceeds benefit the Westport Farmers’ Market. Tickets are available at https://www.fairfieldtheatre.org/shows/stageone/look-and-see
