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 experts such as scientist Paul Stamets and author Michael Pollan, we awaken to the beauty, intelligence and solutions the fungi kingdom offers.

Join us for an exclusive Texas showing of “Fantastic Fungi” in our auditorium and post-screening Q&A with director Louie Schwartzberg.

“With the Amazon rainforest on fire and no discernible endgame for our dependency on fossil fuels, this picture provides a beacon of hope that feels neither hollow nor forced. Its illustration of fungi’s resilience is dazzling on both a visual and intellectual level, while affirming with matter-of-fact clarity that we, as a species, must evolve with nature in order to prevent our own extinction.” Roger Ebert
