Bald Mountain is a modern-day gangster film set during a famous gold rush. Made famous by the black-and-white images taken by photographer Sebastiao Salgado, Serra Pelada represents the highest concentration of manual labour since the pyramids of Egypt. The Brazilian gold rush, southeast of the Amazon, saw approximately 120,000 people chasing their dreams of wealth. This epic feature follows two friends who leave Rio de Janeiro in search of gold: one, an ex-boxer turned gangster, corrupted by greed and power; the other, a man whose only ambition is to make enough money to return home to his pregnant wife.
