Gold Fever interweaves prospector Al Doherty’s wilderness journey with exotic side trips to Thailand, India, and Africa, documenting the cultural, economic, and historical significance of gold. It takes the audience on a wild ride around the world and plummeting down a mine shaft, filming in the depths of an alien underground world where no large format camera has gone before.
