Sedona News – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of “Gold Run” showing Sept. 22-28 at the Mary D. Fisher and Alice Gill-Sheldon Theatres.
He’s not the bravest of men, but he’s given a great responsibility and an enormous task – to get the whole Norwegian gold reserve away from the Germans during the invasion of Norway during the outbreak of WW2.
“Gold Run” is the extraordinary true story of a WW2 top-secret mission that shaped a nation’s destiny.
In April 1940, German soldiers descended upon Oslo with three targets: the King, the government and Norway’s gold reserves. Within only a few hours, parliamentary secretary Fredrik Haslund brings together an unlikely team, including his sister, a veteran of the Spanish Civil War, bankers, truck drivers, and a famous poet.
Their mission is to move 40 tons of gold across the country to reach an Allied shipping convoy, outsmarting and evading the approaching Nazi forces.
“Gold Run” is a mesmerizing story of resistance and heroism.
“Gold Run” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher and Alice Gill-Sheldon Theatres Sept. 22-28. Showtimes will be Friday, Sept. 22 at 7:00 p.m.; Sunday and Thursday, Sept. 24 and 28 at 3:30 p.m.; and Monday and Wednesday, Sept. 25 and 27 at 4:00 p.m.
