Permies Movie Night - Friday, July 29, 2022

We had a really great time last week, watching Fools and Dreamers, and the ensuing conversation was illuminating and delightful!

Seems like maybe folks wanna give it another go, so here we are.

The fine print, copied from last week

Let's vote on a movie via a little poor man's poll in the comments below, and then I'll update this thread with a link to the publicly available film of our choosing.

Then comes the fun part - we all get to come back to the movie thread and talk about the movie!  Kinda like a book club, but one where you don't have to read.  (Except then you do have to read to participate in the discussion part on the forum, but I digress . . .)

Now, technically speaking, one could watch the movie at any time.  And I guess that's okay too, but there's something kinda magical about the thought of all of us popping our own popcorn, firing up our own viewing accouterments, and letting 'er rip . . . together.

In a similar wonderful approach to hands.ie, how about the Documentales from Eugenio Monesma, available here: https://www.youtube.com/c/eugeniomonesma/videos

Some wonderful old handcrafts and skills from Spain. As a non-spanish speaker, for me this also qualifies as foreign film festival. Luckily the videos are captioned, but that wonderful Spanish sounds makes the experience quite special.

I’ll watch what ever consensus decides.

This will be my last Friday in this home.

What I will try to do is get a link and description for the David Liu documentary on land restoration, on a piece of land the size of Belgium.  Fertile productive land to blowing sand to pastures and orchards….

I have a night or two in a motel, then next Friday I will watch the consensus film the first Friday in my new location!  (14 A , ponderosa pines and incense cedar.  Oh boy)

It will give me some continuity since all else in the world, let alone my life, is tipsy turvey!

Fantastic Fungi is playing from July 26th to August 1st.

They are not vegetables, and not meat, but somewhere in between.

And they may hold the key to saving our planet.

New mushroom-based technologies can now filter water, clean up oil spills, create new soil, and directly send nutrients to plant saplings.

Add to this the fact that they are a source of food and medicine, which can treat mental, anxiety, depression, fatigue, & sleep issues, and fight disease.

All of the ways fungi are important in our lives (and future) are explored in this special event edition of the film: Fantastic Fungi.

Originally released in 2019, it still maintains a 100% rating on the famous film critic website Rotten Tomatoes until this day.

It's an incredibly moving and inspiring story that I'm sure you will love, and a MUST-SEE for anyone who cares about the future of the planet, and health.

Fantastic Fungi

So Fantastic Fungi is in the lead - but it's behind a registration wall.  How do people feel about giving foodrevolution.org their email adresses?

Behind Fantastic Fungi is a 3-way tie.

Personally I'm fine with giving foodrevolution.org my email address to see the movie, but then they already have it since I've been following their work for years already.  I've found it to be a quality organization.  In general they are oriented around whole food plant based health and eating, but I don't feel like they are militant that everyone must act like they do.

Edited to add that with the Food Revolution you can always unsubscribe from emails with no problems.

And the winner is . . .

Fantastic Fungi!

Seems like the email registration link is straightforward enough, and it's playing great on my end.

Link to watch the film (expires after this weekend!): https://fungi.foodrevolution.org/?uid=13&oid=3&affid=405&sub1=pmnt

Post-movie discussion can happen at this thread: https://permies.com/wiki/188888/Fantastic-Fungi

I'm watching this because the link worked and I've got it all set and ready to go--links do not work equally around the world.  So I was happy to see this was available to me.

Glad to hear it worked for you, Melissa.  What did you think?  Discussion is happening here: https://permies.com/wiki/188888/Fantastic-Fungi
(geeky side-note: I think it's kinda cool that the thread ID # for the film thread here on permies is 188888.  Kinda looks like 1 and a bunch of infinities, which kinda makes me think of the unity and neverendingness of the fungal kingdom.)
