Arts & Entertainment

Directors Laura Dunn and Jef Sewell will be in Sewanee to show the documentary “Look & See: A Portrait of Wendell Berry.” A cinematic portrait of the changing landscapes and shifting values of rural America in the era of industrial agriculture, the film revolves around the divergent stories of several residents of Henry County, Kentucky who each face difficult choices that will dramatically reshape their relationship with the land and their community. 

“Look & See” 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. The showing will take place on Friday, Nov. 15, at 4:30 p.m. in Gailor Auditorium.
