A documentary film portrait of the world as lensed through the works of farmer, writer and activist Wendell Berry.
Lee Daniel outside of a Tobacco stripping room
Beyond seeing the beauty of Kentucky, one of the best things about working on this film is the people we meet. The Grigsbys in Campbellsburg, like so many other farmers we’ve met, are truly a picture of graciousness and hospitality. Can’t wait to get back to see them.
A shot of FORTY PANES Director Laura Dunn and Director of Photography Lee Daniel outside a poison ivy covered tobacco barn. Have to say, the ARRI Alexa exceeds our highest expectations. What a camera. Cannot wait for next year’s release of ARRI’s documentary-style version, the Amira.
