THE BIGGEST LITTLE FARM 

RUNTIME: 92 minutes

RATING: G

Follow two dreamers and their dog on an odyssey to bring harmony to both their lives and the land. When the barking of their beloved dog leads to an eviction notice from their tiny LA apartment, John and Molly Chester naively make the choice to move to the country to build a sustainable farm. The land they’ve chosen, however, is utterly depleted of nutrients and amidst a brutal drought. 

THE BIGGEST LITTLE FARM chronicles eight years of daunting work and outsized idealism as they attempt to create a utopia of 10,000 orchard trees, over 200 different crops and animals of every kind – including an unforgettable pig named Emma and her best friend, Greasy the rooster. As their plan to create perfect harmony takes a series of wild turns, they realise that to survive they will have to reach a far greater understanding of the intricacies and wisdom of nature, and of life itself.

 

WHEN SHOULD WE SCREEN THE FILM?

There are many significant days throughout the year where Australians highlight the importance of our natural environment and celebrate our scientific achievements. 

National Science Week (14th-22nd August) is one of those opportunities, however communities can also purchase celebration screening kits for Earth Day (April 22), Plastic Free July, Keep Australia Beautiful Week (Aug) and Education Week (varies by State/Territory). 

The aim of these film screenings is to breathe new ideas and inspiration into local communities around Australia to open the discussion on how to combat new environmental challenges.
