The Biggest Little Farm (2018) USA

Directed by: John Chester

This film is a heartfelt portrait of a Los Angeles couple who flee the detritus and stress of LA for a new life managing (or attempting to manage) a farm just north of the city limits. John Chester and his food blogger wife created Apricot Lane Farms to reconnect with nature, and live an eco-friendly, sustainable lifestyle. Filmed over the course of eight years, The Biggest Little Farm joyously recounts the struggles and successes of their inspirational endeavor with none of the sort of eco-panic one might expect. Putting his professional camera skills to good use in the service of rural California’s breathtaking natural splendor, Chester creates an autobiographical scrapbook, enlisting writer Mark Monroe (The Cove), to help shape the story. What emerges is a life-affirming tale of one family who followed who followed their hearts and turned their dreams into a flourishing, sustainable reality.
