Film documents LA couple as they ditch city life for life on the land

The journey of a Los Angeles couple who ditch their city life for the farm, is expected to be one of the highlights of this year's New Zealand International Film Festival.

The Biggest Little Farm is the brainchild of Emmy award-winning director John Chester, who stars in the film with his wife Molly.

It follows their successes and failures as they work to develop a sustainable farm on 200 acres outside of Los Angeles. 

John Chester joined Magic Talk's Rural Exchange on Saturday.
