Plot Synopsis:

A thrilling adventure through American
history, Dawson City: Frozen Time pieces
together the bizarre true story of a collection
of some 500 silent films. Dating from the
1910s and 20s, they were lost for over 50
years until being discovered buried in a subarctic
swimming pool deep in the Yukon
Territory in 1978.
Director Bill Morrison (Decasia) uses this
extraordinary footage as a conduit to explore
the complicated past of Dawson City, a
Canadian gold rush town and First Nation
hunting camp that was transformed and
displaced. Dawson City: Frozen Time is a
triumphant work of art that chronicles the
life cycle of a singular film collection through
its exile, burial, rediscovery, and salvation,
discovering another world in the process.
