The Bone Finder, Tracking the Dead

Hidden away on October Mountain in Massachusetts, where Big Foot, UFO's and ghosts are said to be seen, lies a forgotten cemetery. Ravaged over time most of the stone markers that identified the dead are gone and partial burial records do not account for every soul resting in the small clearing. With the help of the Bone Finder, Robert Perry and the technology of ground penetrating radar, we will look below the surface to locate many of the unmarked graves.

Director Statement

Greetings,
This is my second submission into the Praxis Film Festival. In 2015 my short won "Audience Award, Best Documentary Short" for my film "Sawdust, the art of ken packie".
The subject of under ground radar technology used in "The Bone Finder", is the technology I will implore to find a buried elephant in Massachusetts. The search for the elephant Columbus has been a 10 year quest. Unable to dig on private property, ground penetrating radar will identify the elephant's remains.
I do hope you fine my submission interesting and entertaining.
Thank you,
Leo Mahoney
