So, we’ll be screening the film Gold by Thomas Arslan. (2013, 101 min) in German with English subtitles.
What it’s about:
Summer 1898. Canada, during the Klondike Gold Rush. Seven German immigrants set out in search of gold in the backwoods of British Columbia. Together they embark on the long journey to the newly discovered gold fields in Dawson. Brought together by shady businessman Wilhelm Laser’s advertisement, the members of the group put it all on the line to change their miserable lives. The last to join is Emily Mayer, played by Nina Hoss, a metropolitan woman whose delicate demeanor masks a steely determination to survive. As the path grows more treacherous, betrayals come to light and desperate choices are made. Gold is an epic that offers an unconventional take on the Western genre.
