'The Biggest Little Farm (PG) Shown at this year's International Film Festival, Uplifting, educational, and entertaining, The Biggest Little Farm is an environmental advocacy documentary with a satisfying side dish of hope for the future. A testament to the immense complexity of nature, The Biggest Little Farm follows two dreamers and a dog on an odyssey to bring harmony to both their lives and the land. Chester's film induces a rare tranquility with its rapturous images of wild creatures... Amazing photography. The search for balance gives this film tension, and it's gratifying to see the old ways working.

The Biggest Little Farm is filmmaker John Chester's love letter to his wife Molly and their joint vision to live a life of purpose -- all thanks to a dog they rescued. John, a cameraman and documentarian, and Molly, a private chef, bring their rescue dog Todd to their tiny Santa Monica apartment. But because of his incessant barking, the landlord evicts them. This prompts the Chesters to fulfil a shared dream of living a rural life on a fully self-sustainable farm. So, after writing a business plan and sharing their vision far and wide, they find enough investors to embark on their journey. John and Molly enlist help from biodynamic farm expert/mentor/guru Alan York, who mentors and designs the entire farm for them, making sure they understand the importance of biodiversity -- from the animals they raise to the microorganisms in the soil to the 75 varieties of fruit trees they plant. John, who narrates the film, films over seven years; the documentary begins with the panic of the 2018 wildfire and then rewinds to share the year-by-year ups and downs of facing and overcoming challenge after challenge.
