Join us for a work-in-progress viewing of filmmaker Julia Haslett's upcoming documentary that traces efforts by Chinese and Scottish conservationists to preserve the rhododendron. Native to the mountains of southwest China, the rhododendron was highly sought after by plant hunters at the height of the British Empire. Today, its survival in its native habitat is at risk due to development, exploitation, and climate change.
