End of the Rainbow 


End of the Rainbow (2007) 83' - Arte,ITVS,SBS 

A Looking Glass Picutres / Transeurope Film production in association with Screen Australia, Arte (France), ITVS (US), SBS. 

Throughout 2004, 2005 and 2006 I pursued the transplantation of a gold mine from one side of the world to the other.

End of the Rainbow is about the pursuit of gold and a better life. The film starts in Borneo in Indonesia and finishes in Guinea in west Africa, but it could have easily been somewhere else.
