The Lure [12A]


The Wales premiere of the festure length documentary: The Lure.
An eccentric millionaire hides $3 million of gold somewhere in the Rocky Mountains, luring thousands out on a wild treasure hunt in search of riches and redemption.

In 2010, eccentric millionaire art dealer Forrest Fenn buried $3 million worth of treasure somewhere in the Rocky Mountains. Fenn published the secret to its location via a cryptic poem, which lured thousands out on a wild hunt to uncover the buried riches. Now, Fenn sits in his museum-like home plotting how to tease clue after clue in his treasure hunt, as throngs of dedicated searchers comb the Rockies.
THE LURE meets an ensemble of these hunters as they match wits against Fenn, each driven by his or her own search for something more than just riches. This quixotic quest develops into an act of redemption for some, akin to a religious fervour. But is the treasure real, or a hoax perpetrated by a master manipulator?
