The Truffle Hunters

Body

Deep in the forests of Piedmont, a handful of 70-80 year old men hunt for the rare white Alba truffle. Demand is constantly increasing – even as supply dwindles due to climate change and deforestation – and the secrets of the truffle hunters’ dying art are more coveted than ever. Guided by tradition and an arcane knowledge passed down through generations, as well as by the noses of their cherished, expertly trained dogs, they evince the power of a simpler, slower way of life in concert with their animals, their community and the landscape.

Michael Dweck and Gregory Kershaw’s follow-up to their award-winning The Last Race, The Truffle Hunters is an beautiful, meditative documentary, paying tribute to an artful tradition.
