Dawson City: Frozen Time


USA 2016, 120 minutes
Dir. Bill Morrison
Rating: [Exempt]
Genres: Documentary / Film History


“(director) Morrison offers a fiercely precise and discerning look at movies themselves as embodiments of history.”~Richard Brody, The New Yorker

Aroview: Staggering documentary about the miraculous excavation in 1978 of 533 silent film reels, buried in 1929 under a swimming pool or hockey rink in Dawson, Canada. The lost films are a treasure trove for historians and film enthusiasts, and includes such footage as the 1919 World Series, and details of the connection between the early 1900's movie business and the American belief in Manifest Destiny.
