Come join us for our January meeting when we will be showing the 2019 nature documentary Fantastic Fungi. Directed by Louie Schwartzberg, this film explores the magical world of fungi, from mushrooms that clear oil spills to underground fungal networks that help trees communicate. Interviews with numerous mycologists, scientists, and authors such as Paul Stamets, Michael Pollan, Eugenia Bone, and Andrew Weil, and spectacular time-lapse photography evoke wonder and amazement by exploring the complexities and sophistication of the fungi kingdom. Fungi are one of the most diverse organisms on Earth and the most populous kingdom on the planet. The Internet Movie Database describes Fantastic Fungi as a time-lapse journey into the magical mysterious and medicinal world of fungi and their power to heal, sustain and contribute to the regeneration of life on Earth.
** Most unfortunately, we are unable to broadcast Fantastic Fungi via Zoom to attendees at-home. This will be an in-house-only meeting and showing of the film.
