Kentucky Author's Essay Is Turned Into Film

An essay written by famed Kentucky Author Wendell Berry directly after the September 11th attacks, has been turned into a film by an eastern Kentucky filmmaker.

Herb E. Smith of the Appalshop, created the film, entitled "Thoughts in the Presence of Fear."

The one hour film, narrated by Berry, puts a local perspective on a national event affecting Kentucky.

Smith says nearly all of the footage used in the film was shot within 50 miles of Whitesburg, here in eastern Kentucky.
