Dawson City: Frozen Time rehashes the history of Dawson City, a gold rush town, which had a historical treasure of forgotten silent films buried in permafrost for decades. In 1978, a bulldozer digs up the long-lost collection of 533 nitrate film prints. Bill Morrison draws on these permafrost-protected, rare silent films and newsreels, pairing them with archival footage, interviews, historical photographs, and an enigmatic score by Sigur Rós collaborator and composer Alex Somers. Dawson City: Frozen Time depicts the unique history of this Canadian Gold Rush town by chronicling the life cycle of a singular film collection through its exile, burial, rediscovery, and salvation.
