LASSETER'S BONES

Synopsis

 

In 1931 Harold Lasseter’s body was found after perishing in Central Australia’s deserts. His diary revealed he’d discovered a fabulous seven mile seam of gold, worth millions, but would “give it all for a loaf of bread”. Despite hundreds of expeditions since, the gold has never been found.

Obsessed with solving the mystery, filmmaker Luke Walker discovers Lasseter’s 85-year-old son Bob, still wandering the desert, on a quixotic mission to find the gold that killed his father and destroyed his childhood. But now, 80 years on, is it still possible to piece together the fragments of history Lasseter left behind?

Looking for gold in Lasseter's story Walker sets out to unravel the tangle of myths, lies and legend that remain buried with Lasseter’s bones in the heart of Australia.
 
 
“…an absorbing psychological and geographical journey… a courageously mounted venture in which myth busting and myth building struggle for supremacy.”
