Fantastic Fungi, The Forbidden Fruit (Video)
Imagine an organism that feeds you, cures you, reveals secrets of the universe, may have advanced the proto-human brain, and today could help save the planet. An organism that seems to be conscious.
Now imagine that it’s in the ground beneath your feet.
If you haven’t seen this yet, take a moment to see the inspiration that began the journey…
Louie Schwartzberg has touched countless millions of people around the globe with his unique appreciation for that which is all around us. Mushrooms become ballerinas, and fungi connects us to the entire universe beneath our feet.
This video begat the idea for a full-length film, bringing together an impressive collection of the worlds experts on the subject, in pursuit of creating a tool to inspire, educate and shift how we view fungi.
The vision evolved into creating this community site, which will not only launch the film, but will serve as the vehicle for a crowdfunding campaign – so we all can claim ownership of this together – as well as entertain the wide variety of interests and passions: foodies, explorers, scientists, rebels, geeks.
Together we will share, laugh, ignite and help cultivate the truest meaning of community. And, we’ll do so while celebrating the very fungi that surrounds us.
