This documentary concerns mycology. New York, a concentrated population of varying cultures, socio-economic backgrounds and more; serves as a thriving petri-dish for new and eager businesses. As New Yorkers seek to reduce their carbon footprint, a number of young designers and scientists have taken up the challenge to create sustainable materials using the potential of funghi.
Interviews with mycologists, artists, and a shoot at ecovative have been confirmed.
