Renowned Chilean playwright/screenwriter/director Guillermo Calderón has gone wild within Swiss modernist Blaise Cendrars’ 1925 novel Gold, about the opportunistic Johann August Sutter.

A film within a play, premiered in 2017, GOLDRAUSCH is a comedy with music that journeys through film director Oskar’s efforts to make a film about the man who started the Gold Rush Fever of 1848: the “Emperor of California”.

Mixed with classic country and Mexican banda songs, GOLDRAUSCH is the story of rampant jealousy, greed, and ambition run amok as duelling actors fight for their close-ups in
Oskar’s magnum opus.
