AERO is thrilled to bring to Helena the first and only bio-pic of Wendell Berry,LOOK & SEE, a cinematic 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 writer, farmer, and activist, Wendell Berry. At AERO, we believe Berry’s work, life, and perspective, offer wisdom, models, and a guiding light for those working to lead lives that are wiser and kinder to the land.
The film is a fundraiser for AERO’s mission to empower communities to nurture and promote a more sustainable Montana, and ticket proceeds will support our 2017 AERO Expo and Annual Meeting in Butte, Oct 20-22. Tickets are available the night of the event, but we recommend purchasing in advance in case we sell out!
About the Film
LOOK & SEE was filmed in and around the rolling hills of Henry County, Kentucky – where Berry has lived and farmed since the mid-1960’s. Filmmaker Laura Dunn 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. Often called “a prophet for rural America,” Berry has long been a voice for the communities that are so often overlooked by the media. LOOK & SEE subverts biopic conventions and immerses audiences into Berry’s world, providing a space for talking about the land and those who sustain it. From acclaimed Executive Producers Robert Redford and Terrence Malick.
