From the smallest backyard to the top of Mt. Fuji, insects inspire an enthusiasm in Japan seen nowhere else in this world. 'Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo' delves into the ineffable mystery of Japan's age-old love affair with bugs, working backward through history to untangle the web of cultural influences behind Japan's rich and enriching social relationship with insects. Multidisciplinary in execution, 'Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo' strikes a new and unconventional approach to science education. Interspersed with the philosophies of Dr. Takeshi Yoro, one of Japan's bestselling authors and anatomists, and laced with poetry and art from Japanese history, the film is about much more than insects.
'Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo' is set to the rhythm of traditional Japanese values in its attention to detail, harmony, and the appreciation of the seemingly mundane. The result is a labyrinthine meditation on nature, beauty, philosophy and Japanese culture that might just make you question if your 'instinctive' repulsion to bugs is merely a trick of Western conditioning.
Dr. Takeshi Yoro, Naohiro Kazaoka, Yu Miyasaka, Takumi Nakamura, , Takeshi Sugimoto
