LOOK & SEE: Wendell Berry's Kentucky Premieres on Independent Lens 4/23 on PBSLOOK & SEE: Wendell Berry's Kentucky Premieres on Independent Lens 4/23 on PBS
by TV News Desk - Mar 22, 2018

Look & See: Wendell Berry's Kentucky is a cinematic portrait of the changing landscapes and shifting values of rural America in an era of industrial agriculture, as seen through the mind's eye of writer, farmer, and activist Wendell Berry. Through his poetic and prescient words and the testimonies of his family and neighbors — all deeply affected by the industrial and economic changes to their agrarian way of life — we see the changing landscapes of rural America and the redemptive beauty in taking the unworn path. Often called “a prophet for rural America,” Berry has long been a voice for communities frequently overlooked by the media. Directed by Laura Dunn and executive produced by Terrence Malick and Robert Redford, Look & See: Wendell Berry's Kentucky premieres on Independent Lens Monday, April 23, 2018, 10:00-11:00 PM ET (check local listings) on PBS.
