This film was last shown on 4 June 2011

Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo delves into the mystery of Japan’s age-old love affair with insects. From the first fabled emperor who dubbed Japan the “Isle of the Dragonflies,” to the cricket-selling businesses of the 1800s, and finally to modern day Tokyo where a beetle recently sold for $90,000, insects inspire an enthusiasm in Japan seen nowhere else in the world.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Jessica Oreck and the Director of Photography.
