Film Screening: "Look and See: A Portrait of Wendell Berry"

Wednesday, February 14, 2018 at 7:30pm to 9:30pm

Apollo Theatre, Goldring Screening Room
19 East College Street, Oberlin, OH 44074

“Filmed across four seasons in the farming cycle of Henry County, Kentucky, Look & See blends observational scenes of farming life, interviews with farmers and community members with evocative, carefully framed 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." 

The film is described as a “vivid, poignant look at the life of seminal American writer Wendell Berry – and, by extension, the country he’s lovingly written about for so long.” –Indiewire.
