Part fever dream, part historical record, Dawson City: Frozen Time tells the bizarre true story of some 533 silent lm reels, buried for almost 50 years in a sub-arctic swimming pool, deep in the Yukon permafrost. Filmmaker Bill Morrison combines excerpts from this film find, including rarely seen Hollywood features, with historical footage, photographs, and interviews, to explore the complicated history of Dawson City, founded across the river from a First Nations hunting camp, the Canadian Gold Rush town at the end of a film distribution line. Propelled by Alex Somers' score, Dawson City: Frozen Time is a a deep dive into the connections and contradictions of the 20th century archive.
