Ready for CAE p 176. Film Version of Michael Pollan’s Botany of Desire. Extra Listening
Michael Pollan’s best-selling book, Botany of Desire, is now a film. The film takes you inside our relationship with the plant world, and shows “how four familiar species — the apple, the tulip, cannabis and the potato — evolved to satisfy our yearnings for sweetness, beauty, intoxication and control.” The preview is above. You can watch Michael Pollan's interview with Bill Moyers about food (there is a transcript below the video).
