    FANTASTIC FUNGI 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.

    Using time-lapse macro cinematography that is gorgeous, mesmerizing and often startling in the natural beauty it reveals, FANTASTIC FUNGI quickly proves to be one of the year’s most mind-blowing, soul-cleansing and yes, immensely entertaining triumphs as it offers nothing less than a model for planetary survival
