Deep in the forests of Northern Italy resides the prized white Alba truffle. Desired by the wealthiest patrons in the world, it remains a pungent but rarified mystery. 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 canines and their silver-haired human companions, Italian elders with walking sticks and devilish senses of humor who only scour for the truffle at night so as not to leave any clues for others. Still, this small enclave of hunters induces a feverish buying market that spans the globe.

BIOGRAPHY

Michael Dweck (Brooklyn, New York), is a filmmaker and visual artist known for his photographic and film projects, which explore ongoing struggles between identity and adaptation within endangered societal enclaves. Gregory Kershaw (Utica, New York) is a filmmaker whose work explores the complexity and beauty of humans and their planet. Together they directed their first feature film in 2018, the documentary The Last Race, premiered at Sundance, the festival to which they return this year with The Truffle Hunters. The film is part of the official selection for Cannes 2020, cancelled due to Covid-19.
