Against the Objective

I finally sat down to watch the documentary about the life and work of Wendell Berry, Look and See.  I’d been putting off for a month, but a five-hour plane ride can inspire you like that.

The movie begins with a Berry voice-over with some well-shot imagery.  Here’s the introductory piece, “The Objective.”

The movie is quote good, though Berry never actually appears in the movie in-person.  Lots of voiceovers, clips with his wife, and clips of other farmers.   The documentary ends with an extended clip from a debate Berry took part in decades ago . . . One that still feels relevant today.
