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 faithful 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 environs of natural beauty.
The 12th season of the Woodstock Vermont Film Series will feature 10 award-winning documentary films that reflect our vision: to share place-based stories of people near and far, to engage our audiences, and to inspire conversations that increase connections with each other and our world. Showings take place on select Saturdays from January 1 – March 12. Film tickets and season passes will go on sale on November 22.
