    Bill Morrison is a master artist when it comes to the reconstruction of archive footage. He reveals a magical dance of the dead in layers of decaying nitrate stock discovered in Dawson City (Canada), 50 years after 533 reels had been buried. The North American Gold Rush of 1896 established Dawson City on the Klondike and Yukon Rivers, displacing a First Nation hunting ground. In 1903, the movies arrived as the town developed out of its whoring, drinking and gambling origins. It was so remote, the studios wouldn't pay for the film prints to be returned so they lay buried in the permafrost until rediscovered in 1978. The soundtrack by composer and Sigur Rós oft-collaborator Alex Somers (Captain Fantastic, Riceboy Sleeps) ensures the material is astounding! Encompassing material from Pathe and European news, it reanimates lost silent movies stars, the perils of prospecting, a major baseball scandal and the expulsion of socialists after the Russian Revolution.
