June 12, 2019 From the Maui Film Festival's Celestial Cinema. Imagine an organism that feeds you, heals you, reveals secrets of the universe and could help save the planet. Fantastic Fungi is a revelatory time-lapse journey, from 2019 Maui Film Festival Visionary Award honoree and director Louie Schwartzberg, about the magical, mysterious and medicinal world of fungi and their power to heal, sustain and contribute to the regeneration of life on Earth that began 3.5 billion years ago. Better yet, you'll see it through the eyes of mycologists, like renowned Paul Stamets exing about the unlimited potential of fungi in the fields of food, medicine, expanding consciousness, bioremediation, neurogenesis and treating end-of-life anxiety.

Fantastic Fungi premiered June 12, 2019 at Maui Film Festival's Celestial Cinema in Wailea, Hawaii.
Really loved Louie Schwartzberg's film Fantastic Fungi.
Louie Schwartzberg was on hand to receive The Maui Film Festivals's 2019 Visionary Award.
"The Visionary Award honors the beauty, surprise, amazement and awe that your extraordinary time lapse cinematography reveals about the extraordinary planet that Humanity and all life calls Home"
As a festival volunteer I felt deeply moved watching the premier of Fantastic Fungi.
I was pleased to see several cast members interviewed who are world renowned experts in their respective fields of science & medicine.
The innovative use computer graphics helped to visualize and understand concepts of extremely complex science.
The time-lapse cinematography was other worldly.
So if you are interested in a broad based adventure traversing nature, biosciences, ecology, environmental conservation, business development, & human psychology research consider watching Fascinating Fungi on the largest screen available.
Excellent choice selecting Brie Larson for narration her words are clear and heart warming
Fasten your seatbelts and hope you enjoy this stunning visual educational wild ride.
