VarietyÂ "Audiences are invited to connect with the material as they might a good James Herriot story, forging a kind of familiarity that includes them in problem-solving each challenge, with the result that viewers share in the triumph of each tiny success."Â
Festival circuit hit documentary that follows filmmaker John Chester, his wife and their dog and they chase their dream to set up a sustainable farm - with zero experience.
"It all started with rescue dog, Todd. He just didnâ€™t like living downtown, so cameraman John and caterer Molly decided to up sticks and move to a rundown homestead an hour outside the city. Their aim was to farm in harmony with nature â€“ but the snails, coyotes and bugs etc., had other ideas. Restoring the soil, fighting off infestations, nursing pregnant pigs, coping with fire and drought â€“ itâ€™s all in a dayâ€™s work for the determined couple. By year eight, the natural world is rebounding â€“ barn owls, bobcats, gopher snakes and more â€“ and Apricot Lane Farm is alive with infinite possibilities." (Sydney Film Festival)
