The Biggest Little Farm: Live Score Screening With Jeff Beal
Saturday, April 27, 2019 3:00pm
In testament to the complexity of nature, the film follows two dreamers on an odyssey to bring harmony to their lives and the land. John and Molly Chester make a choice that takes them out of the city and into the foothills of Ventura County, naively endeavoring to build one of the most diverse farms of its kind in complete coexistence with nature – on land depleted of nutrients and suffering from a brutal drought. The film chronicles eight years of daunting work and outsized idealism as they attempt to create the utopia they seek. They realize that to survive they will have to reach a greater understanding of the intricacies of nature, and of life itself – a call to arms to those who wish to follow in her footsteps.
LIVE SCORE SCREENING AT THE EASTMAN SCHOOL OF MUSIC - Rare is the opportunity when you can sit in an intimate space and absorb an accomplished orchestra performing in harmony to a spectacular Sundance-selected film. Five-time Emmy-winning composer and Eastman School of Music alumni, Jeff Beal will conduct the score live-to-picture for the film The Biggest Little Farm. Performed by The Empire Film and Media Ensemble, this will be the world premiere of a live score for The Biggest Little Farm.
This screening will be held in Room EEW 415 of the Eastman School of music and followed by an Q&A moderated by legendary film critic, Jack Garner.
