BEST DOCUMENTARY FEATURE BY AN INTERNATIONAL FILMMAKER
An American dream lives on. Gold in the creeks. Gold in the mountains. There for the taking. Instant wealth. Miners, prospectors, ranchers, scientists, everyone who knows the land, agrees that the gold is there, locked in the Montana wilderness.
Larger than Germany, much of Montana is still the Wild West, more bears than people, and fewer people than the Sahara. Somewhere in the great alone, a fortune beckons. Step up and play roulette with geology, you might win the jackpot. Some do.
They drive four posts in the ground and stake a claim, just as miners did 150 years ago. But the real El Dorado that is certainly there is yet to be found. Every year when the snows melt, men and women still search for the elusive mother lode. GOLDLUST is their story.
