What we're about

We are here to enjoy a variety of Art House, Independent and Foreign Language films that usually have smaller budgets and limited release dates. If you tire of the usual multi-million dollar Hollywood blockbuster and seek movies with a little more risk and substance? This meetup group is up your aisle.

Landmark Theatres (Hillcrest Cinemas, and the Ken Cinema), Angelika Film Center and Digital Gym are the main destinations for the events. We will mix in other locations as well including various film festivals throughout the year.

WHAT: "THE BIGGEST LITTLE FARM" (PG) A testament to the immense complexity of nature, the documentary The Biggest Little Farm follows two dreamers and a dog on an odyssey to bring harmony to both their lives and the land. When the barking of their beloved dog Todd leads to an eviction notice from their tiny Los Angeles apartment, John and Molly Chester make a choice that takes them out of the city and onto 200 acres in the foothills of Ventura County, naively endeavoring to build one of the most diverse farms of its kind in complete coexistence with nature. The land they’ve chosen, however, is utterly depleted of nutrients and suffering from a brutal drought. The film chronicles eight years of daunting work and outsize idealism as they attempt to create the utopia they seek, planting 10,000 orchard trees and over 200 different crops, and bringing in animals of every kind—including an unforgettable pig named Emma and her best friend, Greasy the rooster. When the farm’s ecosystem finally begins to reawaken, so does the Chesters’ hope—but as their plan to create perfect harmony takes a series of wild turns, they realize that to survive they will have to reach a far greater understanding of the intricacies and wisdom of nature, and of life itself.
