Koi, the Living Jewels

Posted on 1/19/2016 12:00:00 AM in What We're Watching

A note from our curator, independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:

For six years, I had the opportunity to travel and become a student of sunrises all around the world, filming a series called Sunrise Earth that we produced for Discovery. In this episode of the short companion series Sunrise Diaries, we’ve traveled to the landscape garden of Ritsurin, in Takamatsu, Japan. My eye is captured by the Koi, the colorful fish that can live remarkably long lives. Eighty—even 200 years! In the extremely tight aesthetic of a Japanese garden, how does this fish fit in? I asked both the head gardener and American Doug Roth, publisher of the Japanese Garden Journal.
