Fantastic Fungi Manchester Screening + Live Q&A on Thursday 26th March 2020

Please note, this event has been postponed until 17th Oct 2020.

Join us on 26th March for a screening of Louie Schwartzberg’s new film, Fantastic Fungi at NIAMOS, Warwick St, Manchester.

Fantastic Fungi takes us on an immersive journey through time and scale into the magical earth beneath our feet, an underground network that can heal and save our planet.

Through the eyes of renowned scientists and mycologists like Paul Stamets and best-selling authors such as Michael Pollan, Eugenia Bone and Andrew Weil, we become aware of the beauty, intelligence and solutions the fungi kingdom offers us in response to some of our most pressing medical, therapeutic and environmental challenges.

Directed by award-winning filmmaker and pioneer of time-lapse photography, Louie Schwartzberg (Moving Art, Wings of Life, Mysteries of the Unseen Worlds 3D Imax), Fantastic Fungi is an immersive experience that will inspire a shift in consciousness and a renewed love of nature.

Be a part of the mycelium movement on 26th March with over 500 venues across the globe screening Fantastic Fungi and participating in a live simulcast Q & A with Director Louie Schwartzberg, Mycologist Paul Stamets and other luminary special guests.

Throughout the evening there will be additional extrasensory experiences provided by:

Apta, who’ll be serenading our ears with live analogue synth wizardry and unrelinquishing optimism which permeates through countless arrays of new world synthesis. Clean lines and vivid colours decorate this sonic landscape.

The Flasher, whose lighting and specially commissioned visual projections will be providing optical wonders throughout the evening created by the White Hotel and Warehouse Project resident visual guru.

Additional musical support will be provided by Russ Marland (Duende / Vinyl Exchange) Matt Ward (NTS / Piccadilly Records) & Craig Swayward (Wet Play) Sounds to be broadcast across the airwaves prior to the screening.

'Fascinating, informative, educational and totally entertaining.' - Observer

'One of the year's most mind-blowing, soul-cleansing and yes, immensely entertaining triumphs.' -
