Photos from the movie The Fruit Hunters

    In evolutionary terms, many believe the proteins we ingested from eating other animals contributed to humanity's growing brain size, facilitating man's top-of-the -- food chain status through a newfound superior intelligence. But it is fruit that inspires imagination, fuels passion, and conjures nostalgia in us. And fruit could be the force that leads us towards a food revelation, if not a food revolution.

    Based on Adam Gollner's bestselling book by the same name, award-winning Canadian documentary filmmaker Yung Chang's The Fruit Hunters is a globetrotting tour of places and people to whom fruit is a way of life and not just a suggested daily dietary recommendation. From Borneo to Colombia, Italy to Hollywood, these fruit-obsessed individuals band together through the shared joy of sublime taste, a far cry from the tasteless factory-farmed apples, oranges and grapes most North Americans are subjected to. Fruit Hunters come from all walks of life, including life-long scientists, obsessed average joes, and celebrities like Bill Pullman, who search the world for new mango varieties, track down surreal-sounding fruit like orange cloudberry or the blackberry jam fruit, and the Superfruit, which alters your taste buds, making lemons taste sweet!
