using flowers came from a book that i found by a gardener of a duke named george st. claire in the 1800s and he was doing experiments on grasses and darwin cited it in his theory of revolution. and i found these books where specimens had lasted 200 years, perfectly preserved, and in the world of digital data that feels temporary or easily dispose of, that this thing remained. i wanted to do something with those dried or barium specimens and speak about these notions of survival. to me it was so much about that. in this book, those specimens stood alongside his data recordings. and from that point i went off to find things like that picture at the munich conference of hitler, mussolini and chamberlain. >> rose: you said to someone else, "i was interested in the idea of these men who felt they could control the evolution of the world with their language and assertions and flimsy paperwork they are about to sign and nature is this castrated decorative thing that sits between them." >> yes, and there are sculptures in the work designed based on plant presses, where all of the 36 agreem

careers on hold to join the war effort. frank capra, john huston, william wieler, john ford, and george stephens, all joined us to document world war ii. five came back as a new netflix documentary series that tells their stories. it is adapted from mark harris' 2014 book of the same name. the director of the series is laurent buzureau. >> when i was working on the book, i became really interested in this era and in these world war ii movies. and when the book came out, i was surprised at the number of early readers who said to me, "it was fascinating to read about these documentaries. too bad most of them are lost." and i would say to them, are, the documentaries aren't lost. they all still exist. they're properties of the u.s. government." so i thought this is a real opportunity for us, as well as i could try to describe these films in a book, there's nothing like being able to show them to people. so that was the germ of the idea to make it a documentary. >> rose: and then the idea of to take five directors and explain each director. >> that was our director's big innovation. >> rose
