Fantastic Fungi Film Screening at Jane Pickens Theater

  • Jane Pickens Theater 49 Touro Street Newport, RI, 02840 United States (map)

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, therapeautic, and environmental challenges. The film is a visual spectacle and will inspire a shift in consciousness and a renewed love of nature.

Director Louie Schwartzberg will do a Q & A via Skype after the film. A percentage of the proceeds from this evening will be donated to Aquidneck Community Table.

Stoneacre Brasserie will be creating a special meal with mushrooms from RI Mushroom Co. on November 20th so be sure to make dinner reservations for before or after the show!
