Look & See, a film by Laura Dunn, is a 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 award-winning writer and farmer Wendell Berry, back home in his native Henry County, Kentucky. Berry is a poet, novelist, longtime environmental activist and former contributing editor to New Farm Magazine and Organic Gardening and Farming.
