Official Trailer for IMAX Movie ‘Fungi: Web of Life’ Narrated by Björk
“We’re burning the library… A library of different ways to rise to the challenge of living.” What a chilling statement. There’s an IMAX movie playing in theaters this year called Fungi: Web of Life, or Fungi: The Web of Life. We’re just catching up with this now even though it has already been showing at IMAX theaters everywhere. Much of life on Earth is connected by a vast, hidden network that we are only just beginning to understand. Out of sight, between the world of plants and animals, another world exists — the kingdom of fungi. From the ancient Tasmanian Tarkine Rainforest to the mystical wilds of China’s Yunnan Province, come search for solutions to some of our planet’s biggest challenges. Narrated by Björk, who “speaks the story with inimitable magic and sensitivity.” This isn’t the only doc on fungi – there have been a few others recently including Fantastic Fungi on Netflix plus The Hidden Life of Tries. This one features astonishing fungal time lapse photography from some of the best fungal photographers working today, including Steve Axford, Patrick Hickey, & Wim van Egmond. Playing as a special 3D IMAX experience if you can catch it. 🍄
Here’s the official trailer (+ poster) for Kaufmann & Nizeti’s doc Fungi: Web of Life, found on YouTube:
Merlin Sheldrake presents an IMAX movie called Fungi: Web of Life. Much of life on Earth is connected by a vast, hidden network that we are only just beginning to understand. Out of sight, between the world of plants and animals, another world exists — the kingdom of fungi. The film is about the ways that fungi have shaped life on Earth for over a billion years, and how we might partner with them to adapt to the radical change of our times. Fungi: Web of Life, also known as Fungi: Nature’s Hidden Kingdom, is co-directed by filmmakers Gisela Kaufmann (director of Shark Girl, “Nova”, other nature docs) & Joseph Nizeti (composer / co-director of River / producer of “Phenomena”, other nature docs). It’s produced by Stranger Than Fiction Films. With cinematography by Cam Batten. “The film will be trickling into IMAX cinemas across Europe and North America over the latter part of 2023 and into 2024, and may already be playing at a theatre near you.” Fungi: Web of Life already opened earlier in 2023 and has been playing at IMAX theaters around the world.
