Canadian director Ron Mann (who, in 1986, became the first filmmaker to visit the Cinematheque) has spent his career making entertaining documentaries about the 1960s-1970s counterculture ("Twist," "Comic Book Confidential," "Grass," "Tales of the Rat Fink," et al.). So it was just a matter of time until he got around to a movie about mushrooms. We show Mann's KNOW YOUR MUSHROOMS this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. After you've seen the film, you might like to experience mushrooms in the flesh. And you have two good opportunities. On September 20 Bioneers Cleveland and the Cleveland Museum of Natural History are organizing a trip to the Killbuck Valley Mushroom Farm (details here). And on Monday night, September 14, Whole Foods Market in University Heights (our promotional partner on this film) is hosting an informal hourlong session about their extensive mushroom selection. Click here for details on that event.
