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. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.Written by
This movie is an important movie for our time and for our future. It is very important to have the conversations the movie creates.
Beautiful and, at times breathtaking. The story is well put together to cover it"s theme and message. It leaves you saying "Wow", and "Hmm" and "Interesting". That is the sign of a good documentary and this movie exceeds those expectations.
Where will this story of the Fantastic Fungi evolve over the next several years? I don't know, but I know with the vision of the director, the answers truly lay right at our feet. Just see Fantastic Fungi and you'll understand.
