The Biggest Little Farm
Running Time: 91min
Film Year: 2018
Category: Documentary Achievement Award
Filmmaker John Chester and his wife, Molly, a culinary writer, trade city life to start their own farm on a stretch of depleted soil outside Los Angeles. Part of their inspiration is to offer a better, outdoor life for their rescue dog, Todd. Moreover, they want to live in better harmony with nature. Many of us hold similar dreams, but John and Molly put them into action.
John chronicles their efforts for more than eight years in this sweeping epic of twists and turns related to the creation of Apricot Lane Farms. Teeming with stunningly beautiful images of flora and fauna—and a pregnant hog that will melt your heart—The Biggest Little Farm is a testament to idealism. For urban viewers, it’s a necessary confrontation with how our food is grown. It’s also a family adventure – like a modern-day Little House on the Prairie – full of suspense and emotion that will leave a lump in your throat.
