Last night we were treated at last to the inaugural screening of my roommate Kat Green’s documentary, The Secret Life of Mushrooms at the Kraine Theatre in New York City. It was a classy affair with luminaries from the film and television industry plus art stars, burners, and friends packing the house.
This was the first time I saw the movie, but having witnessed Kat’s inspiring dedication from notion to product it felt familiar. A mere year ago, she took her scrappy crew from Spygirl Pictures down to Huautla de Jimenez, Mexico to document the long-term effects of psychedelic mushrooms on the small town that gave American hippies their first dose. Needless to say the effects were staggering to both cultures.
Keep an eye out for the film on the festival circuit and feel free to tell everyone you know!
