  • Exotic Exoticism: Plant Wars

    2007. Taiwan. Directed by Asio Liu. Shaped by a series of vignettes on non-native plants and bees that have been imported into Taiwan, Exotic Exoticism subtly considers cultural and environmental issues. Some of these "alien" plants are cultivated for food, industrial products, or decoration, while others are no longer used for their original purpose and now drive out desirable vegetation. The film balances economics, politics, folklore and songs, and natural history. In Chinese; English subtitles. In Chinese; English subtitles. 60 min.
