The Biggest Little Farm (91 mins)
Begins at 7:00 p.m.
A testament to the immense complexity of nature, The Biggest Little Farm follows two dreamers and a dog on an odyssey to bring harmony to both their lives and the land. When the barking of their beloved dog Todd leads to an eviction notice from their tiny L.A. apartment, John and Molly Chester make a choice that takes them out of the city and onto 200 acres in the foothills of Ventura County, naively endeavoring to build one of the most diverse farms of its kind in complete coexistence with nature. The land they’ve chosen, however, is utterly depleted of nutrients and suffering from a brutal drought. This award-winning 2018 documentary chronicles eight years of daunting work and enormous idealism as they attempt to create the utopia they seek, planting 10,000 orchard trees and over 200 different crops, all while bringing in animals of every kind, including an unforgettable pig named Emma and her best friend, Greasy the rooster. Uplifting, educational, and entertaining,The Biggest Little Farm is an environmental advocacy film with a satisfying side dish of hope for the future.
Join Christopher Palbicki and Shona Burke for a discussion after the showing of the film.
