Virtual Movie Night

About the Event

Join us virtually as we enjoy a movie night together, followed by some time for discussion led by hosts Michelle Edworthy (Calgary Horticultural Society) and Highfield Regenerative Farm staff.  We will also have special guest Tara Stephens of Fungi Akuafo joining us to answer questions on mushroom cultivation.

"The Mushroom Speaks" explores the healing qualities of fungi and their ability to regenerate.  This personal journey takes on a walk alongside parasites, symbionts, and decomposers offering ideas of both interconnectedness and collaboration.  Driven by a vision of resistance, the encounters seek possibilities of renewal and question what connects us when the world seems to be falling apart.

With mushrooms and their allies, the film invites viewers to imagine a mycro-cultural (r)evolution.  What if the fungus could help us address and radically change our relationship to this world?

Due to streaming agreements, the movie portion of this session will not be recorded so you must be available during the schedule time for viewing.  A short break will be incorporated about half way through the movie.

Registration for this event will close Tuesday February 22, 2022
