Funtastic Fungi runs from Monday, January 27 thru Wednesday, January 29. It screens Monday to Wednesday at 7pm with an additional special screening on Wednesday at 4pm in Thalian Hall’s Main Theatre. Runtime: 1h 21m. Not rated.
Fantastic Fungi, directed by Louie Schwartzberg and narrated by Brie Larson, 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.
"Schwartzberg’s film quickly proves to be one of the year’s most mind-blowing, soul-cleansing and yes, immensely entertaining triumphs.”
Matt Fagerholm, Roger Ebert
"Do not miss Fantastic Fungi, one of the most beautifully powerful and intellectually stimulating films of the year and perhaps even the decade.” Pamela Powel, Reel Honest Reviews
