Dimensions: 7.28" x 4.94"
Berry has watched the modern-day agrarian struggle unfold, writing from a long wooden desk beneath a forty-paned window in Henry County, Kentucky, and has become one of the most passionate and eloquent contemporary voices working to defend agrarian life.
“As I see, the farmer standing in his field is not isolated as simply a component of a production machine. He stands where lots of lines cross – cultural lines. The traditional farmer, that is, the farmer who was first independent, who first fed himself off his farm and then fed other people, who farmed with his family and who passed the land on down to people who knew it and had the best reasons to take care of it… that farmer stood at the convergence of traditional values… our values.” — Wendell Berry, Author, Activist and Farmer
In the spirit of Berry’s agrarian philosophy, Henry County itself emerges as a character in the film – a place and a landscape that is deeply interdependent with the people that inhabit it.
As an avid Berry reader and co-Producer of the film, Nick (just his hands & tools, really) also makes a cameo as a woodworker.
