Add to Watchlist

A documentary adaptation of the popular book, written by popular author and scientist Michael Pollan. The premise is simple: a demonstration of the nuanced intricacy beetween plant and human life. Using 4 specific examples; using 4 different plants, Pollan shows that similarities exist that one might otherwise not suspect. The photographic and production style, accompanied with a strong narrative on its own, make The Botany of Desire appeal to an audience far beyond the average science geek. To the contrary. By using Potatoes, Cannabis, Tulips and the Apple we are shown the amazing lengths and instinct these plants possess - using them to adapt to their complex relationship with humans.
