Australian Premiere of Look & See to Screen This Thursday Night at The Schonell Theatre

October 4, 2017 Whats On No Comments Email Email

“A vivid, poignant look at the life of seminal American writer Wendell Berry — and, by extension, the country he’s lovingly written about for so long” – Indiewire

The Food Connect Foundation is hosting the Australian Premiere screening of the award-winning Sundance documentary LOOK & SEE, a powerful cinematic portrait of Wendell Berry – farmer, activist, and undoubtedly one of America’s most significant living writers.  The film will be screened at 6.30pmThursday, 5 October at the University of Queensland’s Schonell Theatre.

Often called “a prophet for rural America,” Berry has long been a voice for the communities that are so often overlooked by the media. Filmmaker Laura Dunn skilfully weaves Berry’s poetic and prescient words with gorgeous cinematography and the testimonies of his family and neighbours, all of whom are being deeply affected by the industrial and economic changes to their agrarian way of life.

“It’s a conversation that is more urgent now than ever, as we find ourselves in a deeply divided nation where urban consumers remain so completely disconnected from the rural producers whose work sustains their very lives,”says director Laura Dunn. “Wendell shows us with extraordinary sensitivity, just what fidelity to a place and to one’s own community can truly mean.”

Produced by Robert Redford it has won awards at the SXSW Film Festival, and was recently updated for the 2017 Sundance Film Festival to reflect the conversations that have emerged since the election of Trump.
