The Truffle Hunters (2020)
This gorgeous documentary follows a handful of Italian octogenarians deep into the woods of the Italian Piedmont in search of white truffles. Rare and costly, these prized culinary delicacies can sell for tens of thousands of dollars apiece, but the secret to finding them belongs to a select few and their beloved, expert dogs. A charming glimpse into the soul of old Italy, the film picked up awards for cinematography as well as a 2021 Fido award recognizing best canine appearances in cinema. It’s the perfect appetizer for dinner-and-a-movie night! Italian with subtitles. PG-13
