FANTASTIC FUNGI is 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.
Through the eyes of renowned scientists and mycologists like Paul Stamets, best-selling authors Michael Pollan, Eugenia Bone, Andrew Weil, and others, we experience the power, beauty, and complexity of the fungi kingdom.
Narrated by Brie Larson, the 2019 film is an astonishing blueprint for how the mycelium network connects all humanity and the natural world, offering solutions to some of our most pressing medical, therapeutic, and environmental challenges.
