This is one for the nature lovers and shroom enthusiasts out there, a film all about the miraculous mushroom (and it’s many forms) that looks set to blow our minds. Louis Schwartzberg’s ‘Fantastic Fungi’ is an immersive film that takes the viewer on an immersive trip beneath the ground where an underground network that can heal our planet exists. Through the eyes of renowned scientists and mycologists like Paul Stamets and best-selling authors such as Michael Pollan, Eugenia Bone and Andrew Weil, we become aware of the beauty, intelligence and solutions the fungi kingdom offers us in response to some of our most pressing medical, therapeutic and environmental challenges.
Sounds pretty amazing doesn’t it? If you fancy watching the film and becoming a part of the mycelium movement on the 26th March over 500 venues across the globe will be screening Fantastic Fungi and participating in a live simulcast Q & A with Director Louie Schwartzberg, Mycologist Paul Stamets and other luminary special guests.
