Factual 75'


Will the Golden Owl, buried somewhere by a certain Max Valentin, ever be found?


The Golden Owl is the world's longest treasure hunt: for thirty years, tens of thousands of people have been searching for the exact location of a statuette worth up to €500,000!


Somewhere in France is buried a gold statuette in the shape of an owl. To find it, you have to solve a series of 11 riddles. The owl is the object of a treasure hunt devised in 1993. Since then, 200,000 people have tried in vain to find it. The designer buried the bird in a place known only to him, and took his secret to the grave following a sudden heart attack.
