A documentary film portrait of the world as lensed through the works of farmer, writer and activist Wendell Berry.
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.
Originally, our distributor sent us their ideas for DVD covers (bottom smaller images.) We didn’t love them. I had a series of posters envisioned that rhymingly juxtaposed Nature & Development. (Construction Crane vs Butterfly emerging from Cocoon [SHOWN], Spider Web vs Aerial of Subdivision Roads, etc.)
I sent the proposed concept (Big image) for the cover. But distributor firmly wanted a House on the cover. I understood the reasoning, the Subprime Crisis had just started. But I never really loved the Cancer Map vs the Swimming Kid image that became the official cover.
