"Now, Forager" (Movie about love & mushrooms) in Downtown Houston

Hikers, mushroom-pickers, nature-lovers, foodies, romantics, and fans of independent film will love this new movie that is playing at Sundance Cinema in Downtown Houston for ONE NIGHT ONLY!

Time: Meet at 7PM for 7:15PM show.

Now, Forager: A Film About Love and Fungi
Run time: 93 minutes
Directed by Jason Cortlund and Julia Halperin
Lucien and Regina are foragers - they gather wild mushrooms and sell them to New York restaurants. Their lifestyle is simple, their income unstable. As Regina seeks more security and Lucien wants to devote himself to full-time nomadic foraging, their individual desires put the marriage to a test. A food lovers’ film.

    It was a great evening! Thanks, Amanda, for hosting this event! Getting to meet the Directors and the Actor after the movie was a nice touch in promoting the film. I really enjoyed the Q&A they held.

    Great movie! It was a nice treat to have the co-directors and lead actor there for a Q&A and DVD signing. It was nice to see Erica, Sophie, The Bag, and the other folks from the other 2 meetups. After the movie we went around the corner to Little Napoli for some Italian food, drinks and conversation.

    I don't know if anyone tried to buy their movie tickets online yet besides me. I tried and got an error message stating that tickets were unavailable. Contacted the theater and was told that I should try using a different web browser. I was using Firefox but will try again using Explorer.
