Science on Screen: New Fungi Found in Connecticut
Real Art Ways Science on Screen® season invites you to experience the unique combination of a feature film and a relevant talk from a notable local figure in science.
Film: Know Your Mushrooms
“As with all of Mann’s films, his enthusiasm is infectious. He comes to praise mushrooms, not to bury them, and long may his frying pan sizzle.” – Toronto Star
“A playfully informative look at various types of fleshy fungi and the folks who avidly consume them.” – Variety
Ron Mann investigates the miraculous, near-secret world of fungi with über myco visionaries Gary Lincoff and Larry Evans as they lead us on a hunt for the wild mushroom and the deeper cultural experiences attached to fungi life.
Combining material filmed at the Telluride Mushroom Fest with animation and archival footage along with a neo-psychedelic soundtrack by The Flaming Lips and The Sadies, Know Your Mushrooms opens the doors of perception and takes the audience on a longer, stranger trip.
