Documentary filmmaker Ron Mann (GRASS; COMIC BOOK CONFIDENTIAL) digs deep into the rich and earthy lore of the lowly fungus and profiles a subculture of mushroom enthusiasts, mycologists and fungophiles. At the annual Telluride Mushroom Festival, fabled mushroom hunter Larry Evans holds forth with a colorful fungal vocabulary equal to that of an expert wine taster, and later Mann explores an audacious theory that hallucinogenic mushrooms played a pivotal role in man’s evolutionary development.
