Overview

Deep in the forests of Northern Italy, a select circle of elderly men and their sharp-nosed canines hunt for precious truffles. Shortlisted for the 2021 Oscars, Michael Dweck and Gregory Kershaw’s festival favourite The Truffle Hunters offers a magical glimpse behind a carefully guarded, generations-old tradition that’s at risk of dying out. Following the men and dogs who devote their lives to this rarefied delicacy, and the feverish global market that devours their wares, this documentary is a charming deep-dive into a fascinating culinary sub-culture. Gorgeously lensed and utterly transportative, The Truffle Hunters is essential viewing for dog lovers and gourmands alike.
