Dawson City: Frozen Time (2016)

Dawson City: Frozen Time pieces together the bizarre true history of Dawson City, a Canadian gold rush town about 350 miles south of the Arctic Circle. The story is told through a collection of some 500 films, dating from the 1910s and 20s, that were discovered buried in permafrost in 1978.

Using these permafrost-protected rare silent films and newsreels, archival footage, interviews and historical photographs, and accompanied by an enigmatic score, the film depicts the history of a town by chronicling a singular film collection through its exile, burial, rediscovery and salvation — and through that collection, how a First Nation hunting camp was transformed and displaced. (120 minutes)
