with filmmaker Bill Morrison
In the late 1970s hundreds of reels of nitrate film were found buried in the permafrost below a one-time public pool and hockey rink in Dawson City, Yukon, the site of the Klondike Gold Rush. Dawson City had been the final stop for a distribution chain that sent movies and newsreels to western Canada. This cultural treasure trove—which included long-missing Hollywood narratives and unique footage of events such as the 1919 World Series—became the source material for artist Bill Morrison’s extraordinary compilation Dawson City: Frozen Time—a riveting journey to a forgotten era that reveals the history of a community through a finely woven tapestry of ephemeral film fragments, historical footnotes and poetic storytelling. The mesmeric score is by Sigur Rós collaborator Alex Somers. (Bill Morrison, 2016, USA, 120 minutes)
