You might know Wendell Berry for his poetry, novels, activism, or agrarian values. If you've found comfort in his musings, you won't want to miss the first documentary about him. And if you're new to the eighty-three-year-old writer's literary and cultural contributions, award-winning filmmaker Laura Dunn's documentary Look & See: A Portrait of Wendell Berry will get you up to speed. Dunn's eighty-minute film highlights how Berry's Kentucky community is changing due to agricultural demands, encouraging viewers to examine how these effects might ripple into their own lives. The film centers on industrial agriculture's impact on land and values, which is why this screening is cosponsored by N.C. State's Center for Environmental Farming Systems and NCSU Libraries. Combined with the work of cinematographer Lee Daniel (Dazed & Confused, Boyhood) and sound recording by Justin Hennard (A Scanner Darkly), Dunn's film also features a notable production team, including Terrence Malick, Nick Offerman, and Robert Redford. —Tara Lynne Groth
