HFS: The Truffle Hunters 12A

Details Information

This immersive documentary, filmed over three years, observes a group of elderly Italian men who live deep in the forests of Piedmont and hunt for the rare, expensive white Alba truffle, which to date has resisted all efforts at cultivation. Guided by tradition and arcane knowledge passed down through generations, as well as by the noses of their cherished, expertly trained dogs, they evince the power of a simple, slower way of life lived in harmony with their animals, their community and nature. 

Tickets £5

 Shortlisted for the 2021 Oscar for Best Documentary​.
