Summary
Director Bill Morrison uses the Dawson City Collection, a long-lost group of 533 silent film reels discovered in 1978 buried in a subarctic swimming pool deep in the Yukon Territory, as a conduit to to explore the complicated past of Dawson City, a Canadian gold rush town founded across the river from a First Nations hunting camp. Includes film excerpts, historical footage, photographs, and interviews.
