The Marine Film Society and the Marine Community Library are thrilled to announce the next film of the Marine Documentary Film series, “The Biggest Little Farm.”
‘The Biggest Little Farm’ chronicles the eight-year quest of John and Molly Chester as they trade city living for 200 acres of barren farmland and a dream to harvest in harmony with nature. Through dogged perseverance and embracing the opportunity provided by nature's conflicts, the Chesters unlock and uncover a biodiverse design for living that exists far beyond their farm, its seasons, and our wildest imagination. Featuring breathtaking cinematography, captivating animals, and an urgent message to heed Mother Nature’s call, ‘The Biggest Little Farm’ provides us all a vital blueprint for better living and a healthier planet.
John Chester is not only one of the featured farmers, he is also the film’s director. Alongside his feature documentary work, it was the time he spent traveling the world as a wildlife filmmaker that inspired his interest in the complex interworking of ecosystems—a curiosity that serves him well on Apricot Lane Farms, the biodynamic and regenerative farm he and his wife started in 2010. Official selection at Sundance and Telluride.
The free screening will be held at the Marine Village Hall on Thursday, February 6, 2020 at 7 pm.
Marine Documentary Film Series is supported by both Marine Library Association and a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council.
