What happens when a Los Angeles filmmaker and a professional food writer decide to buy a ramshackle farm and attempt to grow crops and animals in complete harmony with nature? The result is an astonishingly beautiful documentary about the fulfillment of a promise to live a life of meaning and purpose.
Join the Library and Professor of Film & Literature Pete Fraser for a screening and discussion of Christian themes in The Biggest Little Farm. As an optional literary complement, we will also discuss parallel themes in the film with Willa Cather’s short story “Neighbour Rosicky.” The full text of “Neighbour Rosicky” is available free from Project Gutenberg. It is not necessary to read the story to attend the screening or discussion.
The event will take place on Monday, March 2 at 7:00pm in the Library Auditorium. Admission is free and no RSVP is required. For more information or a PDF of “Neighbour Rosicky,” contact Harold Henkel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
