To mark the last week of Mark Dion’s exhibition the Life of a Dead Tree, MOCA co-presents with Hot Docs a story of biodiversity and the building of an ecosystem. John and Molly Chester make a choice most of us only dream of, trading in the city hustle to live in harmony with the land. The Biggest Little Farm chronicles their efforts for more than eight years in this sweeping epic of twists and turns related to the creation of Apricot Lane Farms.

Official Selection—Sundance Film Festival, TIFF, Telluride 2018


Visit The Life of a Dead Tree by Mark Dion before the screening who brings a massive, fully grown, deceased tree, along with its inhabitants, to MOCA.

Trees and forests have long populated Dion’s imagination and a particular body of production. He is well-known for artworks that question how we experience, study, display and think about the natural world.

The Life of a Dead Tree closes July 28, 2019.


If you miss this screening of The Biggest Little Farm at MOCA there is the chance to catch it again on August 7 at Open Roof Festival.
