The Botany of Desire
A Plant's-eye View of the World

The Botany of Desire (2009) - 120 minutes
The Botany of Desire at Amazon.com

Based on the best-selling book by Michael Pollan

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. Explore the natural history of four plants - the apple, the tulip, marijuana, and the potato - and the corresponding human desires - sweetness, beauty, intoxication, and controlling nature - that link their destinies to our own.

This two-hour documentary begins in Michael Pollan's garden, and roams the world, from the potato fields of Idaho and Peru to the apple orchards of New England, from a medical marijuana hot house to the tulip markets of Amsterdam.

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' perspective of the world restores human activity to its proper place in the matrix of nature.
