Know Your Mushrooms
Sept. 2 at 7:30

Filmmaker Ron Mann (Grass) cooks up a tasty stew of mushroom arcana seasoned with astonishing facts (did you know the world's largest organism is a five-mile-long fungus?) and eccentric characters. Using goofy animation and original music by the Flaming Lips, Know Your Mushrooms is a funny, informative tribute to the wild mushroom and the cultural experiences—mind-expanding and otherwise—attached to it. Best Feature, NYC Food Film Festival.

Q&A: Gary Lincoff, who is featured in the film, is one of the nation’s best known mushroom experts. He is the author of the National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Mushrooms.
