‘The Kingdom: How Fungi Made the World’ screening: Part of Conversation Starters 2019: Temperature Rising

Lecture theatre: Level 2

Delve into the world of one of the most undervalued, unexplained organisms and the fundamental role they play in balancing the ecosystem.

Witness a film on the largest and oldest organisms alive today. Fungi brought life back to Earth after the last mass extinction, and their untapped power have the potential to help our species to survive on our poisoned, depleted and warmer planet. In the context of evolution and natural history, scientists are looking at fungi and making life-changing discoveries. Some fungi will save us, others will threaten us and we are just beginning to differentiate between the two.

Following the screening a Q&A with artist Diego Bonetto will occur, reflecting on the themes and ideas explored in the documentary.

Presented as a part of Conversation Starters 2019: Temperature Rising, a weekend of art, discussion and action.
