Institute History

  • 2020 Sundance Film Festival


Developed with groundbreaking scholar and fungi activist Giuliana Furci, Hypha illuminates the importance of the fungi kingdom as the healing agent of Earth. This immersive journey begins with you as a spore in space. A meteorite takes you to Earth, and underneath the soil, you then grow into a hypha. You gather with other hyphae into a mycelium, acquire healing powers to communicate with trees, and transform toxic substances into positive nutrients.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
