27th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
director: Yoshiki Nishimura
original title: FUNGUS
running time: 8 min.
synopsisAn unusual, conceptual documentary that combines the director’s fascination with fungi with modern, audiovisual technologies. Using photogrammetry from hundreds of images, the assembled 3D models document the maturation of four domestically grown species of fungi, their incredibly fast growth, and also their sculptural and artistic qualities.
“Beyond a direct experience of the people, places and things around us, we often turn to forms of mass media to help inform our place in the wider world.”
