FILM

The Bozeman Doc Series continues Thursday, April 14, at 7:00pm at the Emerson Center with the Montana premiere of the award-winning documentary, The Seer: A Portrait of Wendell Berry.

Henry County, Kentucky, like many rural landscapes across America, has become a place of quiet ideological struggle. In the span of a generation, virtues of simplicity, land stewardship, local economies and rootedness to place have been supplanted 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 communities. Writing from a long wooden desk beneath a forty-paned window, Wendell Berry has watched this struggle unfold, becoming one the most passionate and eloquent voices in defense of agrarian life. The Seer is a cinematic portrait of the changing landscapes and shifting values of rural America in the era of industrial agriculture, as seen through the mind’s eye of Wendell Berry.

The Seer will be preceded by MSU grad Eliza Goode’s beautiful short film, The Smell of Cedars Steeped in Rain, a wordless ode to Olympic National Park.

Tickets are available at Cactus Records, Movie Lovers, at the door and online at www.bozemandocseries.org

Ticket cost: $10.00, $8 for students at door.
