As the 50th anniversary of Earth Day approaches, now more than ever, we need to recognize that our connections – to our planet and to one another – can have deep-rooted and long lasting effects on our lives and our collective future.

On April 21st, we invite you to join us for a virtual gathering featuring live-streamed conversations with researchers, educators and solutionaries about our planet’s most pressing environmental and global challenges. Featuring Paul Stamets, Louie Schwartzberg, Suzanne Simard, Jason Silva and many more special guests, the panel discussions will run throughout Fungi Day and be available to watch for free on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.

Fantastic Fungi, directed by Louie Schwartzberg, is a consciousness-shifting film that takes us on an immersive journey through time and scale into the magical earth beneath our feet, an underground network that can heal and save our planet. Through the eyes of renowned scientists and mycologists like Paul Stamets, best-selling authors Michael Pollan, Eugenia Bone, Andrew Weil and others, we become aware of the beauty, intelligence and solutions the fungi kingdom offers us in response to some of our most pressing medical, therapeutic, and environmental challenges. Awe-inspiring time-lapse macro cinematography by director Schwartzberg (WINGS OF LIFE), brings mushrooms and their underworld networks to astonishing vibrant life for a don’t-miss experience. Directed by Louie Schwartzberg. 2019. DCP. 74 mins.
