The Fantastic Fungi film is an educational piece that will enlighten any unfamiliar viewer to the basics of mycology (the study of fungi) and many subfields that branch from it. Louie and his team beautifully curated education with the oohs and ahhs of the fungal kingdom/queendom.
Fungi have a rare quality of existing in both microscopic and macroscopic worlds. After 30+ years of filming, viewers now have the opportunity to witness the event of fungi emerging from an unseeable microscopic organism into its ephemeral macro-body — aka as a mushroom. The captivating time lapses are accompanied by biological insights from leading scientists and moving stories of spiritual healing from fellow human beings.
