The Truffle Hunters w/ En Route
Sunday October 25, 2020  8pm
Movie Festival / Fair

Presented by Devour! The Food Film Fest

Closing Gala Film: The Truffle Hunters is only available for viewers in Nova Scotia in person only with limited capacity; includes a special tasting of Italian food.

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. Italy/USA/Greece, 2020, 84 minutes
Directors Michael Dweck & Gregory Kershaw

Screening with the short film En Route: Inay and her brother get up without complaint. They give Mom, just back from her nightshift, a kiss before getting their day rolling with Dad. The siblings have perfectly mastered the art of matching Dad’s brisk pace, while still engaging in determined dawdling, in order to be rewarded with a sweet pudding treat in the end. The director portrays sibling solidarity with great sensitivity, sharing a youthful perspective that hints at precarious living conditions.
The Netherlands, 2019, 10 minutes
