Flyover Film Festival lands in Louisville

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The eighth annual Flyover Film Festival landed in Louisville on Sunday with a look at one Kentucky's favorite native sons.

The Kentucky premiere of 'The Seer - A Portrait of Wendell Berry' kicked off the five-day event at the Kentucky Center.

Berry, a novelist, poet and farmer, lives in Henry County. The filmmaker says she's glad to be to celebrate rural life.

"I wanted to make a film that will make you care about the farmer, that will make you look at rural American as an important, vital piece of our country, of our country's future," Laura Dunn said.

The festival runs until Friday with movies playing at various locations, including the Baxter Avenue Theatres and the Speed Art Museum. There will be a special outdoor screening of 'Stripes,' a military comedy starring Bill Murray that was filmed primarily in Kentucky, on Thursday night at Copper & Kings.
