GARNET'S GOLD

Large_garnetsgold_web_1
Large_garnetsgold_web_2
Deftly directed by Ed Perkins, this hopeful and ambitious documentary tells the story of Garnet Frost, who, twenty years ago, nearly died hiking by Scotland’s Loch Arkaig, surviving by sheer chance. His brush with death has lingered with him for years, particularly the wooden staff he discovered right before he was rescued. After much research, Garnet is convinced that the staff is actually a marker for a fortune hidden nearly 300 years ago, and returns to the ominous Scottish wilderness in search of it. But as Garnet embarks on his journey, the pursuit for riches is soon eclipsed by a more melancholy search for meaning and inspiration by a wonderfully exuberant man with grand aspirations to make his mark.
