The only truth lies within, but uncovering the truth can be deadly.

Director Ivan Sen’s Goldstone picks up where Mystery Road (Cinequest, 2014) left off. Aboriginal Detective Jay Swan (Aaron Pedersen) arrives in Goldstone, a frontier mining town in the middle of the desert, in search of a missing person. However, the investigation stirs things up, and the townsfolk aren’t too thrilled by having him there. As he digs deeper, it becomes apparent the town had an unsavory history of nepotism and crime. Cinematically radiant with the backdrop of the Australian outback, Goldstone pays respect to its ancestral heritage while layers of drama and politics are unpeeled—making for a piece of evocative and intelligent entertainment.
