We are excited to announce a special screening of Fantastic Fungi and discussion with mycologist Paul Stamets and Director Louie Schwartzberg.
Narrated by Brie Larson
Fantastic Fungi is more than a film – it is a portal to connection and collaboration. We are establishing the team of edge runners (leaders in the mycelium world) who will be instrumental in getting this important film and message out to create the largest and most meaningful conversation and impact possible. We invite you to join us on this journey!
Join us for the pre-event “Mushroom Carpet” where we’ll be joined by local friends and mycelium enthusiasts. Details to come. Pre-event starts at 6:00PM
When so many are struggling for connection, inspiration, and hope, Fantastic Fungi brings us together as interconnected creators of our world.
Fantastic Fungi, directed by Louie Schwartzberg, is a consciousness-shifting film that takes us on an immersive journey through time and scale into the magical earth beneath our feet, an underground network that can heal and save our planet. Through the eyes of renowned scientists and mycologists like Paul Stamets, best-selling authors Michael Pollan, Eugenia Bone, Andrew Weil, and others, we become aware of the beauty, intelligence and solutions the fungi kingdom offer us in response to some of our most pressing medical, therapeutic, and environmental challenges.
Followed by a Post Screening Discussion with award-winning Director Louie Schwartzberg and renowned Mycologist Paul Stamets
