Overview

Some can be found on pizza, some are worth thousands, and some are completely illegal. But what is it that makes mushrooms so diverse, so mysterious, and so powerful?

Louie Schwartzberg is known for nature documentaries like Wings of Life, exploring the lives of butterflies, bees, and bats. In Fantastic Fungi, Schwartzberg uses his signature time-lapse photography to study the amazing mushrooms, yeasts, and molds thriving all around us, with narration from actress Brie Larson.

Through interviews with scientists, researchers, and more, Fantastic Fungi walks us through our history with these strange organisms, their surprising similarities to us, and what we could learn from them. This is a visually stunning exploration of an often-overlooked form of life.
