The Biggest Little Farm, produced by FarmLore Films and released by Neon, is nominated in seven categories for the forthcoming Critics’ Choice Documentary Awards, including Documentary Feature, Director, and Score for Jeff Beal. The film and score have also garnered nominations from the IDA Documentary Awards, and the score from The Hollywood Music in Media Awards (HMMAs).
The movie chronicles the eight-year quest of John and Molly Chester as they trade city living for 200 acres of barren farmland and a dream to harvest in harmony with nature. 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 and its seasons.

A five-time Emmy®-winning composer, Jeff Beal’s approach is a favorite for more sophisticated works. His credits include HBO’s Rome, Carnivale, and the Netflix series House of Cards. Most recently, Beal received his 19th Primetime Emmy® nomination for his work on the final season of House of Cards. His documentary work includes Blackfish, Weiner, The Queen of Versailles, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power, and Boston, a documentary about the history of the Boston Marathon. Beal’s recent film projects include Shock and Awe, and Bigger.

In the last few years, Beal’s performing, conducting, and composing worlds have begun converging. In April 2019 Beal conducted The Biggest Little Farm Live to Picture at the Eastman School of Music. He conducted The National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center in the premiere of House of Cards in Concert, with further performances in Miami, the Netherlands, Denmark, and Israel. He also led the Boston Pops Esplanade for the premiere of Boston live-to-picture, and the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra for his new score to The General. Recent concert commissions include works for the St. Louis Symphony, New West Symphony, Smuin Ballet, Brooklyn Youth Chorus, Oregon Ballet Theater, and the National Air & Space Museum. This coming January the Los Angeles Master Chorale will give the world premiere of Beal’s newly commissioned score for chorus and orchestra to the F.W. Murnau silent classic Sunrise in Walt Disney Concert Hall.
