Australian Film About Fungi Narrated By Björk To Screen at MIFF

‘Fungi: Web of Life’, an Australian film about the work of Dr Merlin Sheldrake and narrated by Björk, will screen at the Melbourne International Film Festival in August.

From Australian production house Stranger Than Fiction Films and screening exclusively in IMAX, Fungi: Web of Life follows UK biologist Dr Merlin Sheldrake on a mission to educate the population about fungi’s possibilities, advocate for their preservation and, in his own words, give this kingdom of life “a kingdom’s worth of attention”. Lulled by the soothing narration of Björk – a fellow fungi lover – and featuring mesmerising time lapse footage, this 3D documentary makes for a journey that’s both meditative and awe-inspiring.

The full Melbourne International Film Festival schedule will be revealed on July 11.
