Open Roof 2019: The Biggest Little Farm and Sauna
The evening’s festivities kick off with Sauna who bring their post-punk influenced synth-driven sounds to the ORF stage for the first time. After that, we go on an eight-year journey with filmmaker and farmer John Chester and his wife, culinary writer Mary, as they trade big city living for 200-acres of barren farmland and a dream to harvest in harmony with nature in The Biggest Little Farm. Through dogged perseverance and embracing the opportunity provided by nature’s conflicts, the Chesters unlock and uncover a biodiverse design for living that exists far beyond their farm. Featuring breathtaking cinematography, adorable animals and an urgent message to heed Mother Nature’s call, The Biggest Little Farm gives a blueprint for healthier living in harmony with the planet. “It may…revive your wonder at the weird but ultimately awe-inspiring ways in which humans can help nature do its work.” (New York Times)
The Festival will be partnering with a range of different local food trucks throughout the summer, including Fidel Gastro’s, Buster's Sea Cove and Rancho Relaxo, which will be the perfect pairing for a refreshing beer from ORF’s long-standing partner, Amsterdam Brewery.
