Multiple award winner, including Sundance Film Festival and Toronto International

FILM DESCRIPTION: 'The Biggest Little Farm' chronicles the 8-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 Chesters unlock and uncover a biodiverse design for living that exists far beyond their farm, its seasons, and our wildest imaginations. 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.

After the screening, join us via facilitated live chat on Zoom for a discussion with film director John Chester.

Conversation will be facilitated by Susan Lucci, Co-Founder of 2Big4Words, FeelReal and Global Purpose Leaders. Local Acton Partners will be:

--Johari Cole, Iyabo Farms/Pembroke Farmers Cooperative; Farmer, Small Farm Advocate, and Teacher

--Alex Poltorak, The Urban Canopy, Founder and CEO
