Product Notes

THE BOTANY OF DESIRE brings Michael Pollan's best-selling book to PBS showing how human desires are an essential intricate part of natural history. The program will explore the natural history of four plants - the apple the tulip marijuana and corn - and the corresponding human desires - sweetness beauty intoxication. This two-hour documentary begins in Michael Pollan's garden and roams the world from the corn fields of Iowa to the apple forests of Kazakhstan from a medical marijuana hot house to the tulip markets of Amsterdam. N and controlling nature - that link their destinies to our own. One of the great conceits of human civilization is to put ourselves outside nature - sovereign constantly shaping and re-shaping the wild for our own purposes; people as subjects and plants as objects. Taking these plants' eye view of the world will help viewers understand the need to restore human activity to it's proper place in the matrix of nature.
