The film "Look and See: A Portrait of Wendell Berry" will be screened at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 1 in Nissan Auditorium on the Mississippi University for Women campus as part of the Forum Series hosted by The W's Gordy Honors College.
The screening is co-sponsored by the Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science, High Hope Farm and The Homestead Education Center.
Through his poetry and essays, Berry has become one of America's most passionate and eloquent defenders of sustainable farming and local economies against the encroachment of industrial agriculture.
Shot in the rolling hills of Henry County, Kentucky, where Berry has lived and farmed since the mid-1960s, the film weaves gorgeous cinematography with Berry's own words and the testimonies of his family and neighbors.
Directed by Laura Dunn, the film was produced by Robert Redford, Terrence Malick and Nick Offerman.
Tickets are free and will be held at the door but must be reserved in advance at thehomesteadcenter.com events page.
