Storyline

In 1931 Harold Lasseter's body was found in Central Australia's deserts. His diary revealed that he'd found gold, worth millions...but that he'd give it all for a loaf of bread... The gold is still yet to be found. Filmmaker Luke Walker finds Lasseter's 85 year-old son, still searching the desert, not only for gold, but something far more precious. Now, 80 years since Lasseter set off from Alice Springs to meet his fate, is it possible to piece together the fragments of history he left behind? Armed with a camera and the unshakable belief that he will find gold in Lasseter's story, Walker sets out to unravel the tangle of myths, lies and legend that lie buried with Lasseter's bones in the heart of Australia.

Australian Gold
1 August 2016 | by thirtyfiveshotsSee all my reviews

Unfortunately, I truly had to search far and wide to find a way to view this film, being that there was no release in the U.S. (at the time that I became aware of its existence), couldn't purchase it outside of the Australian iTunes system, and I was unable to find a website hosting it. That being said, I was not disappointed when I finally got my hands on a copy. This film is about the characters and their personal journeys and development throughout there search for Lasseter's gold. Not only are we given insight into the life of Lasseter and his son, but the filmmaker's obsession with the legend as well. This is character development at its finest. I will be doing a further reading on this story. (Somewhat reminded me of the story of the Lost Dutchman mine in the southwest U.S.)
