Mush Room for Thought

Original title Mush Room for Thought


Ah! UNA! The echo of her voice reaches me, with some delay, from the left. Come here with your camera! What is it?! Ah, what could it be? I walk in her direction. She’s squatting, her body tilted forwards. Right arm extended she’s holding a stick, poking at a white spongy sphere protruding from a heap of leaves. Record this! What could it be? – An essay film that follows four avid mushroom hunters around the woods of Zagreb and Slavonski Brod, Croatia.
