Speed Art Museum says
Directed by Laura Dunn

Traversing four seasons of the farming cycle in Henry County, Kentucky, this documentary illustrates Wendell Berry’s agrarian philosophy. Berry moved back to the Henry County rural community in 1965 where he settled into a life of farming, writing, and teaching, with the relationship of the individual to land and community being central to his work. Within one generation, the balance between these core issues has been tested by the commercialization of agriculture.

Using striking images of farming life and interviews with local farmers and community members, the film brings to life Berry’s passion for simplicity, land stewardship, sustainable farming, and local economies. Executive produced by Robert Redford and Terence Malick. 2016, U.S., DCP, 82 minutes.

Director Laura Dunn will introduce the film on the following dates:
Wednesday, July 27th
Friday, July 29th
Saturday, July 30th
Sunday, July 31st
