About This Show

Look & See is a cinematic portrait of the changing landscapes and shifting values of rural America seen through the mind's eye of writer, farmer, and activist Wendell Berry. Filmed in Kentucky's Henry County, where Berry, one of America's most significant living writers, has lived and farmed since the mid-1960s.

Look & See chronicles decades of industrial and economic changes to this community's agrarian way of life. Filmmakers Laura Dunn and Jef Sewell skillfully weave Berry's poetic and prescient words with gorgeous cinematography and the testimonies of his family and neighbors in this first documentary about Berry's life and career.
