Celebrate Earth Day this year with an award-winning film: The Biggest Little Farm. With breathtaking cinematography, captivating animals, and an urgent message to heed Mother Nature’s call, the film provides a vital blueprint for better living and a healthier planet. Presented by Housatonic Museum of Art, the FREE screening will be available online starting Earth Day, Thursday, April 22 through April 24. Please visit www.Housatonicmuseum.org to enjoy this special showing.
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 Chesters unlock and uncover a biodiverse design for living that exists far beyond their farm, its seasons, and our wildest imagination.
“This poignant nature documentary follows the Chesters’ journey to return to the land and run an organic, biodynamic farm. As viewers, we get a front row seat to the ups and downs of agricultural life and a new appreciation for the ecosystems that farms establish,” said Robbin Zella, Director, Housatonic Museum of Art.
The film is part of a virtual Earth Day Celebration presented by Housatonic Community College. A special thanks to Connecticut Film Festival for organizing this screening, and to Pitney Bowes, Avangrid, and Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin Company for their support of Housatonic Community College’s STEAM programs and Earth Day presentation.
