Thursday, we we're talking about a documentary about a farm. It's the vision of filmmaker John Chester and his wife Molly, who wanted to create a place where they could raise crops and animals following the way a natural ecosystem works. They found what seemed at first like Eden -- 200 acres of land in the foothills of Ventura, California. They join us to talk about the daunting work and what they learned from the wisdom of nature. Their film is called The Biggest Little Farm. (Rebroadcast)

The Biggest Little Farm opens Friday, May 24 at the Broadway Centre Cinemas in Salt Lake City. It runs through May 30, with showtimes at 12:05, 2:05, 4:05, 7:05, 9:05. To buy tickets, visit saltlakefilmsociety.org
