Has anyone seen this movie? It is a fun film on the role that Mycelium and Mushrooms play in all facets of existence on earth. A "descriptive time-lapse journey about the magical, mysterious and medicinal world of fungi and their power to heal, sustain and contribute to life on Earth."

They touch on turkey tail and reishi and using mushrooms for immune support.

"Through the eyes of renowned scientists and mycologists like Paul Stamets, best-selling authors Michael Pollan, Eugenia Bone, Andrew Weil and others, we become aware of the beauty, intelligence and solutions the fungi kingdom offer us in response to some of our most pressing medical, therapeutic, and environmental challenges.

Yes, I watched the movie either on prime or Comcast. It is light hearted and informative. It touches on how possibly magical mushrooms helped in the human evolution. Talked about Mycelium and how trees talk to each other. Interviewed Paul Stamets, the creator of Host Defense supplements.
He spoke about using mycelium for cleaning up oil spills in the ocean or for biological pest control. Plus mushrooms for immune boosting and cancer.
I enjoyed the movie.
