NOMINEE · GRAND JURY DOCUMENTARY PRIZE · SUNDANCE

Three elderly truffle hunters ruminate on ritual, aging, dining delicacies, canine companionship, and changing ecology in this unique slice of life documentary with echoes of Honeyland (SWIFF’20).


Deep in the lush forests of Northern Italy resides the prized white Alba truffle. Coveted by the wealthy, the cult status of this fungus is amplified by the fact that it cannot be cultivated, it can only be found in the wild by a tiny circle of silver-haired Italian elders - and their beloved dogs.

With unprecedented access to this elusive enclave, follow the fascinating cycle from forest floor to velvet cushioned auction of the rich and famous. A glimpse into a world where life moves at a pace out of time, The Truffle Hunters is sure to awaken an appetite.

“A constant feast for the eyes and a nourishment for the soul.” –The Hollywood Reporter
