SXSW 2016 INTERVIEW: THE SEER COMPOSER & MUSICIAN KERRY MUZZEY
by Jason Whyte
""THE SEER is a documentary film that is about the changes happening in present-day rural America, in this era of industrial agriculture; but as seen through the mind's eye of Wendell Berry, the American poet, farmer and activist. The film revolves around the stories of several residents of Henry County, Kentucky, and they each face difficult choices and tough times that are reshaping their relationship with their land and their community. Itís an example of this very quiet ideological struggle in rural parts of the country thatís becoming louder and louder as industrial agriculture takes over many of our countrys' small farms. The challenges and decisions these farmers face have become urgent. And this way of life that has always been very iconic American and very simple and beautiful is quickly disappearing." -- Kerry Muzzey, the composer and musician behind the South By Southwest 2016 entry THE SEER."
