World Premiere of The Fruit Hunters in Montreal


On November 10 the Montreal International Documentary Festival (RIDM) will present the World Premiere of The Fruit Hunters – a fantastic, epicurean quest for the planet’s exotic fruits based on the book by Adam Leith Gollner. From Borneo to Hollywood, from Honduras to the monasteries of Umbria, filmmaker Yung Chang follows these dogged fruit collectors (including actor Bill Pullman, among the most dogged of all) who dedicate their lives to tasting every possible variety of mango or seeking out figs like those seen in Renaissance paintings.

Scubazoo handled permit applications, filming permissions and production logistics for the shoot in Sarawak, Borneo.
