Narrated by Brie Larson, FANTASTIC FUNGI is a fascinating immersive journey through time and space into the magical earth beneath our feet, an underground network that can heal and save our planet. Renowned scientists and mycologists like Paul Stamets, and such best-selling authors as Michael Pollan, Eugenia Bone and Andrew Weil reveal the beauty, intelligence and solutions that the fungi kingdom offers us in response to some of our most pressing medical, therapeutic, and environmental challenges.


“one of the year’s most mind-blowing, soul-cleansing and yes, immensely entertaining triumphs.”~RogerEbert.com


“Louie Schwartzberg’s lightly informative, delightfully kooky documentary, “Fantastic Fungi,” offers nothing less than a model for planetary survival.” The New York Times


“fascinating, informative, educational and totally entertaining”~Rex Reed, The Observer
