Armed with bundles of ancient maps, a leaking boat and a failing heart, GARNET'S GOLD follows one extraordinary man's quixotic and recklessly brave adventure in search of hidden treasure, in a belated rite of passage to reclaim his soul and to rediscover the meaning of his life. From the Academy Award winning producer of SEARCHING FOR SUGAR MAN and MAN ON WIRE, this documentary film touches upon universal themes: dreams, inspiration and the resonating power of hope.
I was recommended this documentary by a friend and am I glad I was directed towards it. It had me totally gripped from the first take and I can only agree with what the other reviewers felt on watching it. It is both emotionally and visually stunning. As for Garnet what a character. Why he would ever see himself as a failure is beyond me. The depth of feeling which he portrayed for both his Mother and his passions was priceless. He is a real gem in life's rich tapestry. I wish him peace and contentment in whatever the future has in store for him. It was a documentary worth its own weight in gold in so many ways.Brilliant stuff Ed I look forward to your next documentary.
