On March 26th, 2020, Fantastic Fungi Day is bringing the fungi kingdom and all of its inspiration and beauty above ground for a one-of-a-kind immersive consciousness-shifting screening event that will interconnect global communities as we mirror the wisdom of the underground mycelium network and connect with one another.
Originally conceived as a worldwide screening event where theaters across the globe showcase ‘Fantastic Fungi’ simultaneously, the incredible documentary screening event will now be taking place in the comfort of your own living room. Including a not to be missed conversation with award-winning Director Louie Schwartzberg, renowned Mycologist Paul Stamets and other luminary special guests.
Now is the time to come together as one on March 26th and join Louie Schwartzberg, Paul Stamets and others as we honor our partner in the world beneath us and begin to bring that which lies below ground … above ground.
Imagine an organism that feeds you, heals you, reveals secrets of the universe and could help save the planet. Fantastic Fungi is a revelatory time-lapse journey, from 2019 Maui Film Festival Visionary Award honoree and director Louie Schwartzberg, about the magical, mysterious and medicinal world of fungi and their power to heal, sustain and contribute to the regeneration of life on Earth that began 3.5 billion years ago. Better yet, you’ll see it through the eyes of mycologists, like renowned Paul Stamets exing about the unlimited potential of fungi in the fields of food, medicine, expanding consciousness, bioremediation, neurogenesis and treating end-of-life anxiety. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
“Schwartzberg’s film quickly proves to be one of the year’s most mind-blowing, soul-cleansing and yes, immensely entertaining triumphs.”
