Amazing close-up of a goldmine full of danger, vice and dreams. Top festival hit.
​A makeshift gold mine on the remote Diosso hillside in Burkina Faso has attracted a swarm of gold-diggers and dynamite blasters, healers and dealers, vendors and prostitutes, children, holy men and barbers.
Living in the promiscuous closeness of a crowded and improvised gold
town, these men and women are recklessly determined to find the gold that will change their lives. The film explores their desperate quest for fortune and elusive happiness. The gold rush is relentless.

Best documentary film at the Brooklyn International Film Festival, special Jury Award at the Festival International du Film Francophone of Namur, Special Mention at the Black Movie Film Festival in Geneva, Switzerland.
