"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 Chester’s 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.
"The Biggest Little Farm" is one of the few documentaries that is convincing in every respect. It is a hopeful film that shows the interrelationships in the complicated system of a farm, in which biodiversity is the main focus. The film conveys both the beauty of nature and the influence of mankind on it.
The dramaturgy of the film is captivating and the film is a sensually, emotionally and intellectually stimulating experience for the viewer. From a journalistic point of view, the film is particularly convincing because of its attention to the complex dynamics in a natural system in which all animals and plants influence each other in an often surprising way. The statements are always illustrated by empirical examples.
"The Biggest Little Farm" is an emotional film that awakens appreciation for other living beings and opens up a vision for sustainable food production. The cinematic realisation of this theme is extremely successful in every respect, from the construction to the use of the cinematic means.
