Searching for Gold

Showing in: Wanaka

Wanaka Session 9: Monday July 3




22mins, Director: Johannes Hoffmann & Julia Brunner, Austria, Subtitles: Yes

The ongoing search for steep, undiscovered snow faces takes this passionate group of freeriders and filmmakers up a road built to support one of the highest gold mines in the world and leads them deep into the remote Ak-Shirak mountains in Kyrgyzstan. Both fascinated and appalled by the clash of the mining industry and the wild mountain glacier area, this group of five sets out on their adventure in search of gold.
