The Seer: A Portrait of Wendell Berry

The Seer: A Portrait of Wendell Berry (2016)Director Laura Dunn divides The Seer: A Portrait of Wendell Berry into chapters–themes really–around Berry’s life and work. And because it’s not just a chronology of his life, it’s even more engaging. The film considers Berry in all of his roles (explicitly and implicitly) as father, farmer, writer/poet, and prophet. In doing so, it reveals that his signature achievement really is that, with the world at his fingertips, he chooses to settle on a small farm in rural Kentucky to make his life. From there, he sets his sights on working the land and cultivating culture.
