About the film

Gold Rush is a short film written, directed, and produced by young filmmaker Kaiser Tangso. Released in 2012, it tells the story of two young brothers, Michael and Billie, who live apart from each other and are brought together one weekend to the historic town of Whipstick Gully. Here Billie tells his enthusiastic younger brother the tale of Whipstick Will and his lost gold. Sparked by this enthralling myth, Michael sets out to cure his boredom by venturing off to uncover Will's gold, to the annoyance of his older brother. What unfolds is a fast-paced, fool-hardy, puzzle-solving adventure where the two brothers must learn to get along with each other, while in the process revealing a long forgotten secret...
