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.
