DAWSON CITY: FROZEN TIME

Dawson CityUnburied (previously lost) nitrate films prints from late 19th and early 20th centuries make up this documentary feast from documentarian Bill Morrison. Settled in 1896, Dawson City (located near the Arctic Circle) is a Canadian Gold Rush town that provide this doc with a treasure trove of historical truth, culled from 533 films. Astonishing.

Time travel is real. History comes to life. Go back in time. This is a one-of-a-kind cinematic experience worth repeating.
