Presented by the Unitarian Church of Calgary. Co-Sponsored by ARUSHA & The Calgary Horticultural Society.
A PBS documentary based on the best-selling book by Michael Pollan, examines this unique relationship through the stories of four familiar species, telling how each of them evolved to satisfy one of our most basic yearnings. Linking our fundamental desires for sweetness, beauty, intoxication and control with the plants that gratify them – the apple, the tulip, marijuana, and the potato. The Botany of Desire shows that we humans are intricately woven into the web of nature, not standing outside it.
