Fantastic Fungi Day at the Wilmette Theatre


3/21/20 Due to COVID-19 the Wilmette Theatre is closed and this event is cancelled.

Imagine an organism that feeds you, heals you, reveals secrets of the universe and could help save the planet. Fantastic Fungi is a revelatory time-lapse journey, from 2019 Maui Film Festival Visionary Award honoree and director Louie Schwartzberg, about the magical, mysterious and medicinal world of fungi and their power to heal, sustain and contribute to the regeneration of life on Earth that began 3.5 billion years ago. Better yet, you’ll see it through the eyes of mycologists like renowned Paul Stamets about the unlimited potential of fungi in the fields of food, medicine, expanding consciousness, bioremediation, neurogenesis and treating end-of-life anxiety. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

There will also be a post screening discussion. The IMA’s foray chair, Bruch Reed and others (TBA) will be on the discussion panel.
