Rainbow Blossom Natural Markets and Foxhollow Farm present LOOK & SEE: A Portrait of Wendell Berry.

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.

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 AND 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 AND 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.

Wendell Berry's daughter, and founder and director of the Berry Center, Mary Berry will be in attendance for a Q&A and discussion of the film directly following the screening. In celebration of NON GMO Month, we will be giving free goodie bags filled with NON-GMO products provided by vendors such as Andalou Naturals, Rainbow Blossom Natural Markets,New Chapter, Ananda Hemp, LifeSeasons, and many more.
