Join directors Michael Dweck and Gregory Kershaw for a conversation about their stunning documentary The Truffle Hunters. Set in the forests of Piedmont, Italy, the film follows a handful of elderly men and their expertly-trained dogs searching for the increasingly rare and coveted Alba truffles. Adhering to a culture and methods passed down for generations and now in danger of extinction, these truffle hunters hold the key for two secrets: a prized ingredient of modern cuisine and the age-old answer to a rich and meaningful life. Dweck and Kershaw are joined by filmmaker Peter Gilbert (Hoop Dreams).
