How fantastic are fungi? Pretty fantastic.
An all-star team of artists, scientists, doctors and explorers are joining forces to create a mind-bending, life-affirming film about the mushroom and its mysterious root-like structure: mycelium. What they reveal will blow your mind, and possibly save the planet.
Fantastic Fungi is an important scientific exploration and visual journey through the exotic, little-known realm of fungi, directed by our friend Louie Schwartzberg, an award-winning master of nature imagery, special-effects cinematography and storytelling that is both informative and inspiring. Collectively, mycelium are the largest organism on our planet; they form an incredible, intelligent network under our feet that has the proven ability to restore our ecosystem, repair our health, and resurrect our symbiotic relationship to nature.
They’ve just launched their Kickstarter campaign, and need to raise $100,000 by April 10, 2015.
Enjoy the video, then head on over to their Kickstarter page and please share your financial support. All of Louie Schwartzberg’s films are beautiful; Fantastic Fungi will be, too, and also especially important.
