Synopsis:
Named as one of the best films of 2017 by more than 100 critics worldwide, 'Dawson City: Frozen Time' tells the bizarre and true story of a long-lost collection of over 500 nitrate film prints dating from the early 1900's found buried in the permafrost at a remote Yukon mining town. Morrison's haunting documentary links that gold rush town to the dawn of cinema. Using the amazing unearthed newsreels, silent movies and documentary images of the town, Morrison conjures the birth of the modern age and creates a unique kaleidoscope of cinema and history.

Interesting, but meandering - Dawson City: Frozen Time review by LC

Spoiler Alert
08/10/2019

The story is an interesting one, and the recovered footage of the lost film is good to see, but the documentary is really about the whole history of the town, from it's inception during the gold rush, up to the 70's when the films were rediscovered. Not a problem, but the story does tend to meander quite a lot. Also, the music is pretty terrible, long and droning. A good film, but should have been much shorter (and with a different soundtrack).
