Dawson City: Frozen Time

"The thrilling documentary "Dawson City: Frozen Time" is indescribable not because it's ambiguous (it's totally straightforward) but because it does so many things so beautifully it is hard to know where to begin." - LA Times

“An aesthetic knockout that's crammed with wild tales, amazing facts and unconventional personalities, a documentary that's also a detective story, a history of a particular place that turns into an examination of an art form as well as a gloss on the political history of the 20th century, Dawson City begins and ends in its namesake tiny gold rush town just south of the Arctic Circle in Canada's unforgiving Yukon Territory.

“It all started in the summer of 1978 when a backhoe operator excavating for a new building in Dawson City came across reels of old nitrate film dating from the teens and 1920s that had been preserved in the far north's permafrost for half a century.

“Writer-director-editor Morrison turned out to be the ideal person to explore all of this. He conveys with magnificent obsessiveness the dramatic details of how and why all that film got buried in the permafrost in the first place, what transpired when it was found, and the unexpectedly compelling history of Dawson City in particular and the 1897 Klondike gold rush in general.” - LA Times
