Dawson City: Frozen Time
2hr CAST: Kathy Jones-Gates, Michael Gates, Sam Kula DIRECTOR: Bill Morrison TUESDAY FILM SERIES
Dawson City: Frozen Time pieces together the bizarre true history of a long-lost collection of 533 nitrate film prints dating from the early 1900s. Discovered buried under a hockey rink in a former Klondike Gold Rush town, their story reveals the links between the movie business and Manifest Destiny in North America.
Beautifully interweaves three marvelous stories, and is a must for cinephiles, history buffs, and anyone who just loves a fascinating tale told entertainingly. ..Enchanting..Nora Lee Mandel, Film-Forward.com
The town's history would be interesting even if not for the films that were buried there, but that particular motherlode of frozen motion pictures makes it all the more so.Sherilyn Connelly, SF Weekly
It might just be the ultimate found footage film.Jose Solis Mayen, The Film Stage
