Doco of the Month: The Biggest Little Farm

8 October
Location informationArc Cinema
Event cost$12/$10

Join us for the latest in documentary filmmaking. We’ll be celebrating diverse voices and intriguing personalities, uncovering truths from the exciting to the uncomfortable, and – most importantly – sharing real stories from Australia and around the world.

This inspiring film chronicles an eight-year quest to transform 200 acres of barren land into a biodiverse farm working in harmony with nature and wildlife.

John and Molly Chester swap their city lifestyle for farm life. Through dogged persistence, and embracing the unexpected opportunities provided by nature's obstacles, the Chesters unlock a biodiverse design for living that has an impact far beyond their farm and its seasonal cycles.

'As John and Molly learn, we learn. Benefiting from exceptional wildlife photography and cinematography, The Biggest Little Farm is a layered and rich experience, full of life and renewal' – San Francisco Chronicle
