DAWSON CITY:  FROZEN TIME

 

In 1978, a man clearing what was assumed to be a vacant lot in the Canadian city of Dawson made an amazing discovery.  Buried in the earth were hundreds of film reels.  The found reels contained many films long considered lost.  A great tale itself, but filmmaker Bill Morrison has many more stories to tell in 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." -- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

120 Minutes, Not rated
