“The documentary, billed as a “consciousness-shifting film,” explores the relationship between human beings and the fungi kingdom through interviews with experts, including esteemed food author and Western Slope resident Eugenia Bone, who lives part-time in both Crawford and New York City. Bone lends her culinary expertise in the role of “mycophagist” (someone who eats fungi); she’s also the author of Mycophilia: Revelations from the Weird World of Mushrooms (among other books).The film delves into the connective nature of mycelium, describing fungi’s role as food, exploring new research on the use of psychedelic mushrooms as therapeutic drugs, and even discussing the “stoned ape” hypothesis, which links mushrooms to the evolution of human consciousness.” 5280 Magazine
