Certified Fresh with 100% on Rotten Tomatoes!

Fantastic Fungi is a vivid journey into the mysterious subterranean world of mycelium and its fruit—the mushroom. A story that begins 3.5 billion years ago, fungi makes the soil that supports life, connecting vast systems of roots from plants and trees all over the planet, like an underground Internet.

Through the eyes of renowned scientists and mycologists like Paul Stamets, best-selling authors Michael Pollan, Eugenia Bone, Andrew Weil and others, we experience the power, beauty, and complexity of the fungi kingdom. The film is a blueprint for what connects all humanity and the natural world.

There is much to learn from the mycelium network, and Fantastic Fungi is an inspiring place to begin the process of bringing us together as interconnected creators of our world.

USA, 2019, 81 minutes, Not Rated, Directed by Louie Schwartzberg

    – Jeannette Catsoulis, THE NEW YORK TIMES
  • “Eye-opening and sometimes eye-popping…fascinating on a lot of levels…Mushrooms -- they're not just for Pizza Hut and Timothy Leary disciples any more.”
