THE TRUFFLE HUNTERS | Official Trailer (2020)


Deep in the forests of Piedmont, Italy, a handful of men, 70 or 80 years young, hunt for the rare white Alba truffle—which to date has resisted all of modern science's efforts at cultivation. They're guided by a secret culture and training passed down through generations, as well as by the noses of their cherished and expertly-trained dogs. They live a simpler, slower way of life:  they're untethered to cell phone screens or the Internet, opting instead to make their food and drink by hand and prioritizing in-person connections and community.

The demand for white truffles increases year after year, even as the supply decreases. As a result, the truffle hunters' secrets are more coveted than ever. However, as it soon becomes clear, these ageing men may just hold something much more valuable than even this prized delicacy: the secret to a rich and meaningful life. D: Michael Dweck & Gregory Kershaw, Italy, subtitled, 2021
