Scottish Premiere

What does it mean to think radically through networks, through mycelium, through enmeshed and attuned connectivity with the more-than-human world? What can we learn from mushrooms’ resilience and adaptability, and their world-making power even amidst devastation?

Narrated by a silent mushroom, this wondrous documentary in conversation with scientists, mycologists, foragers and mushroom lovers is an optimistic experiment in relating to each other and the world around us differently – and finding hope and possibility even in the ruins.

Screening as part of Take One Action Film Festival. Take One Action is an ad-free festival: please take your seats in the cinema at the advertised start time.


Join Glasgow-based collective A+E after the screening for a special live performance celebrating fungi's resilience, plurality and abundance. Let us celebrate the entangled networks we find ourselves within, de-centring our top-down human mindset and re-attuning to a messy, contaminated, tentacular present. The performance will have BSL/English interpretation.
