The Last Season

Film Screening — Duration: 81 mins

Mushrooms are a strange and mysterious species, whose infinitesimal filament roots can go dormant for many seasons until growing conditions become just right. No less odd and unfathomable are humans, whose emotional lives can revive after unimaginable affliction when a nourishing environment presents itself. This film, awarded a 2013 Mountainfilm Commitment Grant, explores the touching relationship between two mushroom hunters: one a Vietnam vet approaching his final days, the other a Cambodian exile conscripted as a child into slave labor for the Khmer Rouge.
