Book signing by Louie Schwartzberg for the beautiful companion book, Fantastic Fungi!
“Schwartzberg’s film quickly proves to be one of the year’s most mind-blowing, soul-cleansing and yes, immensely entertaining triumphs.”
—Matt Fagerholm, RogerEbert.com
“A charming blend of science and conjecture, FANTASTIC FUNGI wants to free your mind.”
—Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times
“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
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.
