Fantastic Fungi, narrated by Oscar-winner Brie Larson, 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.
“Louie Schwartzberg’s lightly informative, delightfully kooky documentary, Fantastic Fungi, offers nothing less than a model for planetary survival.” – Jeanette Catsoulis, New York Times
