Event Originally produced by Magic Lantern Films in 2011.
Summary Gold: today's most popular investment commodity. This astounding film is the first to document the illegal gold-diggers in Mongolia's Gobi Desert risking their lives for a few grams of the precious mineral. While the speculative market value of gold in the Western world holds little relation to any tangible yardstick, the film describes in very direct and stark images what it means to prospect for gold by hand, in brutal conditions eerily reminiscent of the California Gold Rush during the late 19th-century. In amazingly intimate shots, Sven Zellner shows us the people at the other side of the world who pay the real price of gold.
