Fantastic Fungi: The Magic Beneath Us

AWARD-WINNING FILMMAKER LOUIE SCHWARTZBERG’S SIGHT AND SOUND SPECTACULAR

Bioneers is excited to offer two free tickets to the lucky winner of a drawing for the Oct. 10 Premiere screening of Fantastic Fungi: The Magic Beneath Us at the Castro Theater in San Francisco. The screening with be followed by an inspirational conversation with film director Louie Schwartzberg and renowned mycologist, Paul Stamets

Narrated by Academy Award-Winner Brie Larson, Fantastic Fungi takes us on an immersive journey into the magical earth beneath our feet: an underground network with the potential to 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.

When so many are struggling for connection, inspiration, and hope, Fantastic Fungi brings us together as interconnected creators of our world. “I started my career filming time-lapse photography in Northern California, so it feels like a homecoming to present Fantastic Fungi, a smorgasbord of nature’s most mysterious kingdom, and take audiences through the ultimate journey of time and scale, making the invisible visible” stated Schwartzberg, adding “Beauty is nature’s tool for survival. We protect what we love.”

The film is being released in tandem with a new book from Bay Area publisher Earth Aware Editions: FANTASTIC FUNGI: How Mushrooms Can Heal, Shift Consciousness, and Save the Planet. Edited by Paul Stamets, and containing an afterword by Louie Schwartzberg, the book contains written contributions from many of the luminaries we hear from in the film. The book will be on sale at the event. 

For a limited time only, you have a chance to win two tickets to the SF screening! Simply sign up for our email list below, and we’ll enter your name into a drawing. Winners will be picked October 9th.
