Lasseter's Bones
In 1931, Harold Lasseter's body was found in the Central Australian desert. His diary revealed he'd discovered gold, worth millions...but that he'd give it all for a loaf of bread. The gold is still yet to be found. Lasseter's Reef is Australia's El Dorado; a fabled treasure buried in a vast and hostile environment, a magnet for fortune hunters, cranks and dreamers. Filmmaker Luke Walker finds Lasseter's 85-year-old son, still searching the desert, not for gold, but something far more precious.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Lassester's Bones is as much about the illumination of the myth surrounding the man as it is about man's desire to complete the incomplete and fulfil the unfulfilled. It's poetic, personal filmmaking."
‑ Blake Howard, 2UE That Movie Show
"A splendid example of the sort of subjective documentary film-making championed by Werner Herzog...director Luke Walker throws himself into the legend of Harold Lasseter, the explorer who claimed to have stumbled across a mother lode of gold."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"It's a mythical story because of its scale and because of its mysteries, which Luke's intrepid journey seems to have enlarged."
‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
