Treasure by Samantha Moore


A treasure hunter’s tenacious quest across the British countryside leads us to a spectacular gold masterpiece, and the leader who sacrificed it for the sake of her child. A glorious, animated adventure, inspired by the discovery of the Shropshire sun pendant in 2018 – one of the most remarkable finds in Europe in the last century.

Treasure is a film by Samantha Moore, produced by Animate Projects, commissioned by Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery, and funded by BFI NETWORK via Film Hub Midlands, awarding funds from the National Lottery.
