Sony Pictures Classics has acquired the worldwide rights to “The Truffle Hunters,” a documentary about truffle hunting dogs in Italy that premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival.
Directed by Michael Dweck and Gregory Kershaw, “The Truffle Hunters” is set deep in the forests of northern Italy where prized white Alba truffles can be found.
The truffles can’t be cultivated or found except by a tiny circle of canines and their elderly Italian companions who only hunt for the truffles at night so as to not give away their secrets and leave clues for others on how to find them.
