Winner of the First Appearances Award at the 2007 International Documentary Film Festival in Amsterdam (a first for an Australian), this observational documentary follows the relocation of gold mining operations from Indonesia to a remote area of Guinea in West Africa.

End of the Rainbow takes a snapshot of globalised economies and the expatriate communities who follow them to focus on the human stories behind the politics.

Featuring a soundtrack of traditional West African music, this is a sobering film for a country reliant on its natural resources.
