Aurum is an essay film that traverses layers of history and mythology to examine our complex relationship with gold. A symbol of power and a unit of value, the lure of gold has shaped civilisations since ancient times. Aurum juxtaposes today’s extraction and production processes against a tangled history revealing a story of obsession and the power of a single material to transform societies.
