The Mushroom Speaks
Marion Neumann | Switzerland | 2021 | 90 min | English, German, Japanese
Person who cherishes mushrooming and mushroom food might consider fungi mainly as a delicious nutriment. Documentary film The Mushroom Speaks explores fungi in more versatile perspective: biological, anthropological, psychological, even cosmological. Can mushroom guide us in our relationship to the universe?
This exploration documentary filmed around the world introduces the mushrooms and their allies, who seek possibilities of renewal, recovery and unity. Mushroom's affiliation to its environment gives us ideas on how we people could solve problems with connection and cooperation.
