Check out the trailer here:

THE TRUFFLE HUNTERS follows a handful of men, seventy to eighty years young, in Piedmont, Italy, on the search for the elusive Alba truffle. They’re guided by a secret culture passed down through generations, as well as by the noses of their cherished and expertly trained dogs. The documentary subtly explores the devastating effects of climate change and deforestation on an age-old tradition through a visually stunning narrative that celebrates life and exalts the human spirit.

THE TRUFFLE HUNTERS currently holds a 98% Fresh Rating on!

“This endearing, thoroughly entertaining movie might be what we all need right now: An invitation to stop and smell the roses – or, if you’re lucky, their far less showy fungal cousins.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

“A film that lies at the intersection of documentary, Italian neorealism and Renaissance painting, a wholly singular visual experience that is inextricably tied to the film’s storytelling.” – Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times

“Without spoiling the delicate mood with narration or straight-to-camera interviews, Dweck and Kershaw bring us into the company of a band of idiosyncratic adherents to an ancient way of life.” – A.O. Scott, New York Times
