Storyline

Ron Mann investigates the miraculous, near-secret world of fungi. Visionaries Gary Lincoff and Larry Evans lead us on a hunt for the wild mushroom and the deeper cultural experiences attached to the mysterious fungi. The oldest and largest living organisms recorded on Earth are both fungi. And their use by a new, maverick breed of scientists and thinkers has proven vital in the cleansing of sites despoiled by toxins and as a "clean" pesticide, among many other environmentally friendly applications. Combining material filmed at the Telluride Mushroom Fest with animation and archival footage, along with a neo-psychedelic soundtrack by The Flaming Lips, this film opens the doors to perception, taking the audience on an extraordinary trip. Written by Warsaw Film Festival

Unprofessional but fun
27 August 2012 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

With all the grace and finesse of some dude on shrooms, KYM takes a look at mushrooms and tries to make its topic fun. For the most part, it works. It teaches some interesting facts about mushrooms and is entertaining. But there is little else here. With no narration, there is no real plot or connecting thread between topics (other than everything is about mushrooms). And while a great deal seems to be aimed at kids, much of the focus is about the psychedelic properties of some mushrooms (making it easy to suppose this is not targeting kids). And if it is not targeting kids, one has to wonder what the purpose of formatting facts as "Did You Know" questionnaires is (of which the answer is glaringly obvious). In the end, what you have is a lighthearted documentary that isn't too bad (but it didn't convince me to like the fungi).
