IFC Center is proud to bring back one of our favorite films of 2017, Bill Morrison's DAWSON CITY: FROZEN TIME, for a special one-night-only screening on a rare 35mm print, accompanied by ultra-rare restored shorts from the 1910s and 20s that were discovered in the Dawson City as documented in the film, with the filmmaker himself in person for a Q&A. Morrison (Decasia, The Great Flood) pieces together the bizarre history of a collection of 500 films from the silent era, lost until they were unearthed from a subarctic swimming pool deep in the Yukon Territory in 1978. Accompanied by Alex Somersâ€™ elegiac score, this meditation excavated both the rediscovered films and Dawsonâ€™s own glory days as the epicenter of the Klondike gold rush.
