You might not realise it, but fungi are pretty central to life on earth. Not only have mushrooms and mould been credited with bringing life back to the planet after the last mass extinction, but fungi are also key to how species will survive in a warmer (and more depleted) future. The documentary, The Kingdom: How Fungi Made the World, delves into the world of these underappreciated organisms and explains the endless ways that fungi play a vital role in our day-to-day lives. Following the 52-minute screening at the MCA on Saturday, June 1, artist and naturalist Diego Bonetto will host a Q&A where he'll explore the ideas presented in the film and how individuals can help their communities in a time of climate crisis. It's one of four free films about the environment screening over the weekend.

The screening of The Kingdom: How Fungi Made the World will take place on Saturday, June 1 from 12–1.30pm. Booking is required. This event forms part of the Museum of Contemporary Art's Conversation Starters 2019: Temperature Rising program. To see the full lineup, head this way
