Earth’s Golden Playground

a film by Andreas Horvath
(2013 / 106 min)


Since the first Gold Rush in the late 1890s the Yukon with its legendary Klondike gold fields has been a remote land shrouded in mystery. In times of economic instability the high price of gold makes the search for the precious metal all the more attractive. Individual miners compete in this modern day gold rush tale about the quest for the fabulous mother lode, the source, which, despite decades of exploitation, is still believed to lie hidden underground.
