View the special screening of ‘The Truffle Hunters’

Sunday, Nov. 21 at 3 p.m. — WOODSTOCK — Billings Farm & Museum will host a screening of “The Truffle Hunters,” to benefit the Woodstock Vermont Film Series.

Executive producer Geralyn Dreyfous is one of the most prolific and successful producers in independent documentary film, with 154 credits ranging from “Born Into Brothers,” “Allen vs. Farrow,” and “The Hunting Ground” to “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” and 2021 Sundance award nominee, “Try Harder.” Her films have won Academy Awards and Emmys.

“The Truffle Hunters” follows a vanishing breed of now elderly men and their 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.

These savvy hunters are at one with nature while trusting their dogs’ keen sense of smell to unearth these culinary treasures. 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 surroundings of natural beauty.
