What we commonly call “mushrooms” are the temporary and visible fruits of much more complex beings. Under each mushroom, there hides a network that is invisible to the naked eye and which evolves beneath our feet. The Mushroom Speaks ventures into this underground world to listen to what these organisms have to tell us. Accompanied by mushroom enthusiasts and specialists from all over the world, the film weaves a portrait of fungi and the network they maintain with the planet. Their role is crucial to the latter’s preservation and they are defined as “the true immune system for the planet and, by extension, of ourselves.” Marion Neumann unveils this fascinating ecosystem with sensitivity. She invites us to take part in an initiatory journey to discover the fungal realm, its healing and regenerating properties. In a context of rapid environmental change, The Mushroom Speaks provides a necessary societal and ecological reflection that questions our deep relationship with nature.
