Larry Evans, president of Western Montana Mycological Association, along with fellow mycologist, Gary Lincoff, introduce film audiences to the weird world of mycology in the new documentary "Know Your Mushrooms." With a psychedelic soundtrack produced by The Flaming Lips, director Ron Mann's documentary lends an investigative eye into the world of fungi, culminating at the Telluride Mushroom Festival in Colorado, where mushroom fans converge to celebrate thousands of varieties — from button and Portobello to the hallucingenic psilocybin.
