Schools and GroupsInto Film: The Biggest Little Farm

Into Film is proud to present a free educational screening of The Biggest Little Farm as part of the Spring Screenings: Changing Times programme. At a time of remarkable change around attitudes towards the environment, technology, politics, and identity, particularly for young people, this film will open up discussion around some of these themes, utilising the remarkable power of cinema to deepen learning as well as provoke conversation and debate. The screening will be preceded by a short compilation of archive film on the theme, special schools’ edit provided by Yorkshire Film Archive.


After their adorable rescue dog Todd causes them to be evacuated from their urban home for incessant barking, John and Molly Chester decide to follow their dream of creating a sustainable farm together. They move to a rural area outside of Los Angeles and have 200 acres of land to mold into their own vision, aided by their mentor and friend, Alan. Shot over eight years, this enlightening documentary highlights their various struggles, challenges and triumphs along the way, as they aim to create a biodiverse haven for all creatures, great and small. ‘The Biggest Little Farm’ educates young audiences about the food chain, farming practices, nature, and issues around life and death in an accessible way.

PG - BBFC. Into Film recommends this film is engaging for ages 7-16.
