DAWSON CITY FROZEN TIME

Exclaim! - - FILM -

When the late 19th cen­tury gold rush swelled the pop­u­la­tion of Dawson City, Yukon to over 40,000 peo­ple, films were shipped north for screen­ings but never re­turned. In 1978, a con­struc­tion crew un­earthed 533 silent-era films once thought lost to his­tory that had been frozen in the sub­arc­tic tun­dra. With this his­toric trea­sure trove of film his­tory, direc­tor Bill Mor­ri­son ex­am­ines film his­tory and the Klondike gold rush, set to a sound­track by Sigur Rós af­fil­i­ate Alex Somers.
