Movie Series: The Biggest Little Farm
Wednesday Night Movie Series
The Biggest Little Farm
Wednesday, September 18
7:30 pm – Galaxy Cinemas
The popular Wednesday Night Movie Series returns this fall and debuts with The Biggest Little Farm on Wednesday,September 18th, 7:30 pm at Galaxy Cinemas.
The event also includes the opening night reception for the movie series.
Filmmaker John Chester and his wife Molly Chester, 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. As neophytes, John and Molly enlist a consultant, Alan York, whose vision is to raise an array of crops and livestock. Alan cautions that it will take seven years before they fully realize their potential. During that wait, they face mounting obstacles: coyotes, insects, bad weather, and disease, like a modern-day Little House on the Prairie. Most farmers would respond with pesticides, extermination, and concentration on a single crop. But following their guru, John and Molly remain steadfast in their commitment to working with nature, not against it.
