More about Look & See
Look & 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. 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 & See subverts biopic conventions and immerses audiences into Berry’s world, providing a space for talking about the land and those who sustain it. It’s a conversation that is more urgent now than ever, as we find ourselves in a deeply divided nation where so many Americans are disconnected from the farmers who feed them. Robert Redford, Terrence Malick, and Nick Offerman served as producers on Look & See, which, following its award-winning March 2016 premiere at the SXSW Film Festival, was retitled and updated to reflect the conversations that have emerged since the election. Dunn was awarded the IFC “Truer than Fiction” Independent Spirit Award for her previous film, The Unforseen, which was also executive produced by Redford and Malick. It premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, and was broadcast on the Sundance Channel.
