The Truffle Hunters follow a vanishing breed of now elderly men and their faithful dogs through the forests of Northern Italy’s Piedmont region in search of the white Alba truffle, a prized delicacy, the most coveted of which can command astoundingly high prices at auction. The last of a generation, the hunters show a mix of passion, humor, a sense of good-hearted adventure, and pride in what they do, reflecting old world values and operating in tune with the gentle rhythms of life within environs of natural beauty.

FILM SERIES SAFETY All Film Series audience members will be required to show proof of vaccination for entry and are required to wear masks at all times during film viewings in the Theater.
