This documentary looks good it s/b good if/when it becomes available locally. 8+ years from idea to "might work" in the life of a couple on 200 acres in southern CA. The hubby happened to be a pro cinematographer.

Presently showing for a couple weeks in the SF Bay Area at the moment; probably other large venues also.

From what little I can tell right now, it does seem like the movie might be pretty good.



From The Biggest Little Farm Movie:

The Biggest Little Farm Movie wrote: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... Featuring breathtaking cinematography, captivating animals, and an urgent message to heed Mother Nature‚Äôs call, THE BIGGEST LITTLE FARM provides us all a vital blueprint for better living and a healthier planet.

there is another thread on this movie, because I remember there were different opinions. I saw it when traveling in the US a few months ago. It was family safe. I thought it was beautifully made, if a touch unrealistic about what running a farm is really like if you dont have millions of dollars in venture capital paying your bills.

I think it would be a good movie to watch, if nothing else it shows the hardships every farmer faces. I liked the movie series "Pioneer Quest" on PBS for that reason as well, it showed what life was really like back then.
