GOLD: An Animated Rhapsody, is a unique animated musical film and art exhibition inspired by a series of 10 watercolour paintings left in a will from a family’s favourite Uncle. Drawing on archival material and his own art, Len Davies’ eventful life story is interwoven visually through his paintings of Harold Lasseter’s fateful search for gold in central Australia. Whereas Lasseter’s journey was fraught and tragic from start to end, Uncle Lens paintings are beautiful and inspiring. The audience is invited to view the real paintings used in the film via an Art Exhibition exit experience.
