Synopsis

You can find them deep in the jungles of Borneo; in the canyons of the Hollywood Hills; in market stalls in Bali; and even in your own backyard. They’re the Fruit Hunters : adventurers, exotic fruits fanatics and even movie star Bill Pullman, are the subjects of the new film from acclaimed director Yung Chang (Up the Yangtze, China Heavyweight). Driven by an unquenchable passion to taste the wondrous, weird and unique, they've dedicated their lives to creating a Garden of Eden in a world increasingly dominated by industrialized monoculture. A thrilling journey through nature, commerce and adventure, The Fruit Hunters is a cinematic odyssey that takes viewers from the dawn of humanity to the cutting of edge of modern agriculture—a film that will change not just the way we look at we eat, but what it means to be human.
