The Botany Of Desire


The film traces four crops — apples, tulips, potatoes, and cannabis — showing how people have changed them and supported their proliferation across the world. Early on, over scenes of a happy school tour, the words “Welcome to Poverty Lane Orchards,” are spoken by Brian Goodwin, who’s been working a hundred jobs here for ten years, including part-time tour guide for little kids. Gorgeous, lush photos of apples are everywhere; but I think the best segment is below, featuring Steve and Louisa tasting and talking.
