LOOK AND SEE: A PORTRAIT OF WENDELL BERRY presented by Farmshed with support from the Aldo Leopold Audubon Society, Create Portage County, and the Wood, Portage, Waupaca Chapter of the Wisconsin Farmers Union

Join us at Whitefeather Organics in Custer,WI to take a glimpse into the life of Wendell Berry—farmer, activist, and undoubtedly one of America’s most significant living writers.

“The first documentary about Wendell Berry, one of America’s most significant living writers, LOOK & SEE captures the rolling hills and close-knit community of Henry County, Kentucky – where Berry has lived and farmed since the mid-1960’s. Through Wendell’s eyes, we see both the changing landscapes of rural America in the era of industrial agriculture and the redemptive beauty in taking the unworn path.”

“In 1965, Wendell Berry returned home to Henry County, where he bought a small farmhouse and began a life of farming, writing and teaching. This lifelong relationship with the land and community would come to form the core of his prolific writings. A half century later Henry County, like many rural communities across America, has become a place of quiet ideological struggle. In the span of a generation, the agrarian virtues of simplicity, land stewardship, sustainable farming, local economies and rootedness to place have been replaced by a capital-intensive model of industrial agriculture characterized by machine labor, chemical fertilizers, soil erosion and debt – all of which have frayed the fabric of rural communities. Writing from a long wooden desk beneath a forty-paned window, Berry has watched this struggle unfold, becoming one its most passionate and eloquent voices in defense of agrarian life.”
