FILM: Writer & farm activist Wendell Berry – July 17th: Chattanooga
I’m writing to you on behalf of LOOK & SEE, a cinematic portrait of Wendell Berry, farmer, activist, and one of America’s most significant living writers. Often called “a prophet for rural America,” Berry has fostered a lifelong relationship with the land and community of Henry County, KY, which has, like many rural communities across America, become a place of quiet ideological struggle. 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.
LOOK & SEE premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this winter and is currently screening in theaters, on campuses and in communities across the country. We thought you might be interested because the film celebrates, encourages, and raising the voices of small family farmers across this country and can be used as a tool to catalyze local and regional conversations about agricultural sustainability.
One of these community screenings is taking place in Chattanooga, TN on Monday, July 17th at 5:30pm, and we thought your local membership might like to know about it. Tickets are $12 and must be purchased in advance here: https://www.tugg.com/events/look-and-see
We look forward to hearing your thoughts, and thank you for taking the time to watch–
All my best,
Look & See: A Portrait of Wendell Berry
