​Look and See: A Cinematic Portrait of Wendell Berry

LOOK & SEE revolves around the divergent stories of several residents of Henry County, Kentucky who each face difficult choices that will dramatically reshape their relationship with the land and their community.

In 1965, Wendell Berry returned home to Henry County, where he bought a small farm house and began a life of farming, writing and teaching.  This lifelong relationship with the land and community would come to form the core of his prolific writings. A half century later Henry County, like many rural communities across America, has become a place of quiet ideological struggle. In the span of a generation, the agrarian virtues of simplicity, land stewardship, sustainable farming, local economies and rootedness to place have been replaced by a capital-intensive model of industrial agriculture characterized by machine labor, chemical fertilizers, soil erosion and debt - all of which have frayed the fabric of rural communities. Writing from a long wooden desk beneath a forty-paned window, Berry has watched this struggle unfold, becoming one of its most passionate and eloquent voices in defense of agrarian life.

Filmed across four seasons in the farming cycle, LOOK & SEE blends observational scenes of farming life, interviews with farmers and community members with evocative, carefully framed shots of the surrounding landscape.  Thus, in the spirit of Berry’s agrarian philosophy, Henry County itself will emerge as a character in the film - a place and a landscape that is deeply interdependent with the people that inhabit it.

The mission of this event is to provide a venue where people of all denominations can come together to hear uplifting messages by our community's pastors during the Lenten season.  Altrusa wants to continue the tradition of bringing people in the community (and surrounding areas) together during the season of Lent to inspire and prepare us for the Holy Week & Easter.  This event is one of the six times that we bring the community members together and provides a welcoming atmosphere outside of the regular church doors.  It also helps new pastors coming to the area to meet their peers and community members.  The Lenten Luncheon Service Project is the oldest Moberly Altrusa project beginning in 1952!  It is recognized throughout the community and people anticipate its continuance.  Most churches in the Moberly area have been represented by their pastor's message throughout the years, however, it is a great time for others to gather for food, fellowship and a message.
