Independent Lens | Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo | Got Bugs? | PBS

Duration: 00:28
Program: Independent Lens #1223

Beginning in the modern-day and working backward, this film explores the history of Japan's love affair with bugs. Using insects like an anthropologist's toolkit, the film uncovers Japanese philosophies that will shift viewers' perspectives on nature, beauty, and life, and counter the exigencies of day-to-day life.
