EarthxFilm presents Fantastic Fungi in the second annual Best of Fests film festival at 7 p.m., February 28, at the Texas Theatre. Directed by Louie Schwartzberg, Fantastic Fungi is a consciousness-shifting film that takes viewers on an immersive journey through time and scale into the magical earth beneath our feet to the mysterious and medicinal world of fungi and their power to heal, sustain and contribute to the regeneration of life on Earth than began 3.5 billion years ago.
It describes 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 offer us in response to some of our most pressing medical, therapeutic, and environmental challenges.
