About the Movie

From the award-winning director of Comic Book Confidential, Grass, Go Further and a host of paradigm-shifting films reappraising the backwaters of popular culture, Ron Mann investigates the miraculous, near-secret world of fungi with his newest piece of cinema, KNOW YOUR MUSHROOMS. KNOW YOUR MUSHROOMS follows 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 the mysterious fungi. 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 to perception and takes the audience on a longer, stranger trip.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A playfully informative look at various types of fleshy fungi and the folks who avidly consume them. – Joe Leydon, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: 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. – Peter Howell, Toronto Star, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Like Calvin Trillin in print, or Errol Morris on screen, [director Ron] Mann has the knack of generating fascination where none seemed to exist, of carving intrigue from an apparently non-intriguing topic -- okay, a measure of intrigue anyway. – Rick Groen, Globe and Mail, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Another delightful exploration of well-chosen subject matter that's more richly fascinating than you might first expect. – Jeff Shannon, Seattle Times, Jun 24, 2010
