Using inspired-by-real-life characters and shining a light on forgotten events, this revisionist Western is based in the harsh wild west era of the Australian gold rush and unearths a captivating murder mystery.

“New Gold Mountain is a high impact, authored piece of storytelling that demands attention from audiences, and we are thrilled to share it with Australia. This is a precious moment. Let’s reimagine the Chinese voice in our colonial history, one Akubra at a time.”

Director, Corrie Chen.
