Up on the Mountain follows Southeast Asian refugees, Latino immigrants, and rural Americans on a year-round migration to harvest wild mushrooms in the American west. Working on foot in public forests, mushroom picking is an accessible path to self-employment. But despite evidence of the sustainability of the harvest, the workers who supply the restaurants of Europe, Japan, and North America are repeatedly denied access to public lands. In the observational documentary tradition, Up on the Mountain exposes race and class inequities in natural resources policies as well as the resourcefulness of disenfranchised communities.
