Fantastic Fungi - 5th Anniversary!

"Schwartzberg’s film quickly proves to be one of the year’s most mind-blowing, soul-cleansing and yes, immensely entertaining triumphs.”

5th Anniversary. This NEW edition of the film includes never-before-seen footage!

A vivid journey into the mysterious subterranean world of mycelium and its fruit— the mushroom. A story that begins 3.5 billion years ago, fungi makes the soil that supports life, connecting vast systems of roots from plants and trees all over the planet, like an underground Internet. Through the eyes of renowned mycologist Paul Stamets, professor of forest ecology Suzanne Simard, best selling author Michael Pollan, food naturalist Eugenia Bone and others, we experience the power, beauty and complexity of the fungi kingdom.

“At the heart of Fantastic Fungi is the central scientific reality that what fungi have been doing for billions of years is creating the nutrient-rich soil that led to plants and, well, us. Mushrooms are the visible, edible result of the rejuvenation constantly at work in forests wherever dead things lie, but underneath, the masses of wispy tendrils known as mycelium are nature’s internet: connecting trees and swapping nutrients in a vast network that regulates itself for the betterment of all living things.” - Los Angeles Times
