The award-winning documentary "Look and See: A Portrait of Wendell Berry" by Laura Dunn airs tonight on PBS as part of their Independent Lens program. Check your local listings for air time. I highly recommend this film. Regardless of how you feel about Wendell Berry, the film is a stark look into today's industrial agriculture. Beautifully shot. Laura Dunn is also the filmmaker who created the award-winning "The Unforseen" also produced by Terrence Malick and Robert Redford.

Here are reviews:

Dude!!! Thank you so much for this post. I have several of Wendell Berry's books and I think he is most wise regarding agriculture and he's one of my favorite people. I likely would have missed tonights show had you not mentioned this. Thanks Dan!!

I really enjoyed the film. It makes me happy to be a small part of the solution with the small farm my wife and I are starting.
