Filmmaker Laura Dunn’s “Look & See: Wendell Berry’s Kentucky” will offer a cinematic portrait of the changing landscapes and shifting values of rural America in an era of industrial agriculture, as seen through the mind’s eye of writer, farmer, and activist Wendell Berry.
Panhandle PBS and the Don Harrington Discovery Center will co-host an Indie-Lens Pop-Up screening of the film at 6:30 p.m. April 16 at the center, 1200 Streit Drive. This event is free.
Often called “a prophet for rural America,” Berry has long been a voice for communities frequently overlooked by the media.
Filmed across four seasons in the farming cycle, “Look & See: Wendell Berry’s Kentucky” combines observational scenes of farming life and interviews with farmers and community members with lyrical and evocative shots of the surrounding landscape. Thus, in the spirit of Berry’s agrarian philosophy, Henry County itself emerges as a character in the film, a place and a landscape that is deeply interdependent with the people that inhabit it.
