Description

Deep in the forests of Piedmont, Italy resides the elusive and expensive white Alba truffle. Prized by connoisseurs and gourmands all over the world, it cannot be cultivated or found, even by the most resourceful of modern excavators. The only souls on Earth who know how to dig it up are a tiny circle of wily canines and their silver-haired human companions—Italian elders guided by a secret culture passed down through generations. Still, this small enclave of hunters induces a feverish buying market that spans the globe. Produced by filmmaker Luca Guadagnino and featuring stunning images of Italy’s verdant landscapes, The Truffle Hunters is a delicious reminder of the priceless joy of ritual, and how to unearth the magic within nature.
