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, undoubtedly 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.
Often called “a prophet for rural America,” Berry has long been a voice for the communities that are so often overlooked by the media. LOOK AND SEE subverts biopic conventions and immerses audiences into Berry’s world, providing a space to talk about the land and those who live on it.
It’s a conversation that is more urgent than ever, as we find ourselves in a deeply divided world where so many of us are disconnected from the farmers who feed us.
