Our film programs are on hold. When we return, we look forward to showing first run movies, and occasional “TalkBack programs with discussion afterwards. We’re exploring other ways to bring you films as well. Stay tuned!
The Biggest Little Farm, September 2019
The documentary follows a couple who buy 200 acres of barren land north of LA and establish a modern-day Eden of organic food, ecological restoration, and environmental diversity. But this didn’t happen without overcoming a series of unwelcome realities from pests and predators, to wildfires and wind, to biblical rainstorms. Post-movie discussion was led by local farmers who examined the implications for Rappahannock county.
