MUSHROOMLAND:            Who We Are








   about us









THE BASIC IDEA: We, humans, are just a small part of the big world, where every creature is equal and unique. The humans are special because they have conscience, the plants are special because they create organic matter out of sunlight, and every other critter is valuable and should be respected. To be noticed, accepted and loved - don't we all long for it? - requires to see, love back and be able to accept others, no matter how different they might appear to us.

NATASHA GURULEVA - the Mushroomland storyteller - is an award winning book artist, independent writer and filmmaker. Her fascination with the world of nature comes from the magic of her Russian childhood, when every living creature - be it a mushroom, a flower or a butterfly - had as much value as any other, including human beings.

Natasha's stories lead themselves into animation and become films. Natasha creates dolls and sets and places them into the environment of real nature. informs about other Natasha's films
