The Mushroom Speaks unfolds the healing qualities of fungi and their ability to regenerate. This personal journey takes us on a walk alongside parasites, symbionts and decomposers offering ideas of both interconnectedness and collaboration. Driven by a vision of resistance, the encounters seek possibilities of renewal and question what connects us when the world seems to be falling apart.
With mushrooms and their allies the film invites to imagine a mycocultural (r)evolution. What if the fungus could help us address and radically change our relationship to this world?
