The documentary Fanuzzi’s Gold tells of Ed Fanuzzi, a 77-year-old Staten Island inventor and treasure hunter. He sees gold where others see trash, combing the beach with a metal detector and searching through bins at the junkyard. Some of Fanuzzi’s finds end up in his cluttered backyard while others become construction projects for family members in need. Meanwhile, in approximately 2,000 videotapes, Fanuzzi records his life, explorations, and adventures. His home movies are interspersed throughout this portrait of an eternal optimist who has faced tragedy and heartache yet continues to dream of gold. (Directed, produced, and co-edited by Georgia Gruzen; edited and co-produced by Grace Kline)
