Description Using permafrost protected, rare silent films and newsreels, archival footage, interviews and historical photographs to tell the story, Dawson City: Frozen Time pieces together the bizarre true history of a collection of some 500 films dating from 1910s - 1920s, which were lost for over 50 years until being discovered buried in a sub-arctic swimming pool deep in the Yukon Territory in 1978. The original score is composed by Alex Somers (Captain Fantastic). The film depicts a unique history of this gold rush town by chronicling the life cycle of a singular film collection through its exile, burial, rediscovery, and salvation, and through that collection, how a First Nation hunting camp was transformed into a gold mining town, and then a vault of memories from the culture that displaced it. Dawson City, located about 350 miles south of the Arctic Circle, is situated at the confluence of the Klondike and Yukon rivers and rests on a bed of permafrost. Historically, the area was an important hunting and fishing camp for a nomadic First Nation tribe known as Tr'ondëk Hwëch'in. The town was settled in 1896 upon the discovery of gold in its creeks, and it became the center of the Klondike Goldrush that brought 100,000 prospectors to the area that year--the same year the world was introduced to commercial cinema with the advent of new large-scale projectors, and the "movie theater".

I'm glad I finally got to see the movie and I'm glad I saw it because it's the first time I've seen the movie. This is really a great movie about the struggles of people living in the rural areas of Australia. I think the movie is very relevant in many ways to the current events of this country. What I liked the most about this movie is that it's not about the reason for the people to move to Dawson City. It's not about the war. It's about the people themselves. When I watch this movie I feel like I'm part of the story, but it's not a documentary about the war. It's a very well made movie and I can't imagine a better one than this one. The only complaint I have is that the movie didn't go as far as I'd hoped it would. I felt like there was a lot of missing information. Like why did the school board ignore the kids who went to the people's assembly? I understand that the movie was made by a person who doesn't know the truth of what happened, but I think that they could have shown more of the historical evidence that the people of Dawson City actually had a say in the new school board. The way it was portrayed in the movie was kind of a cop out. This is a movie that gives you the facts and the facts give you a different perspective and I think that's what the movie should have done. If you like history and you're a film student, you'll love this movie. If you don't like history and you're just looking for a good movie to watch, this movie is probably not for you.

I have been reading various posts, opinions and comments on this movie and am amazed by the levels of vitriol displayed by the 'users' on this site. This is not some controversial subject that has been covered enough in this medium, and indeed the movie is a well told, well-executed, well-made, well-acted movie. There are very few movies that are in my opinion so thought-provoking and it is easy to see how someone could have turned against the movie after hearing so many negative things about it. To all of the 'dissenters' I will say this: I have been involved in a number of conflicts myself, I have seen the movie, I have met many of the people who work on it, I have spoken to many of the people who were involved, and have seen the movie. What you have not seen is the 'interview' that the movie was filmed, and what you have seen is the 'thesis' the movie was produced to give. No one here has ever said that the movie is incorrect, it is simply that they have not seen the movie. I am a liberal, I am a feminist, and I am a liberal-leaning right-winger. I am also a humanist and have always been very critical of this country and its culture, but this movie was never intended to have a liberal message and I think it will be widely recognized as such. I can only assume that anyone who did not like the movie because they did not like the people portrayed in it, is not someone who can appreciate the importance of the message. If you do not like the movie because you did not like the people portrayed, then I can only guess that you have not understood what the movie was really about. I will say this much, it is a very honest movie and the person who wrote the comments on the IMDb website were not doing this to judge this movie but to see if they were like the other reviewers. If you have not seen this movie, then I think you will enjoy it, and I can only hope that you will do so, because the movie is good and has a very good message. I do not wish to bash this movie, but I will say this: If you want to see a movie that shows the message of love and the importance of learning to value others and to realize that we are all individuals with our own lives and problems to face, then see this movie, it will be a great experience and will not disappoint you.
