Trailer of the Day: MASSACRED FOR GOLD

Massacred for Gold

Jennifer Anderson and Vernon Lott (BAD WRITING, CONFLUENCE), a husband-and-wife filmmaking team from Lewiston, Idaho, return with this directors’ cut screening of their new film unearthing a little-reported, century-old crime. In 1887, more than 30 Chinese gold miners were murdered on the Oregon side of Hells Canyon. Evidence points to an improbable gang of seven rustlers and schoolboys—one only 15 years old—as the killers. With narration by actor Robert Longstreet (PINEAPPLE EXPRESS, THE OREGONIAN), an evocative score by Tim Hecker, and editing by Nigel Galt (EYES WIDE SHUT), MASSACRED FOR GOLD contemplates the inhumanity of the tragic event and the otherwise forgotten men who were so senselessly killed. (112 mins.)

Based on the book Massacred for Gold by R. Gregory Nokes.

Author R. Gregory Nokes and cinematographer Ryan K. Adams will be in attendance for a post-film Q&A session.
