If you missed the film at RR2 and Rockland, you can still check it out at the Portland Museum of Art, perhaps after strolling through the Newell Convers Wyeth exhibition. Say hello to MMA board members and renew your membership when you do!
“Fantastic Fungi 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 offer us in response to some of our most pressing medical, therapeutic, and environmental challenges.”
