Independent Lens | Got Bugs?

Got Bugs?

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.
