Friday August 11 – Thursday August 17

Featured Film:

Dawson City: Frozen Time at the Northwest Film Forum

Two of my favorite films from this past SIFF open this week, and while I really loved Kogonada’s ode to Ozu and modern architecture, Columbus (playing at the SIFF Uptown), our Featured Film this week has to be Bill Morrison’s sprawling documentary Dawson City: Frozen Time. Springing from the discovery of a horde of silent films buried under an old swimming pool to the concurrent histories of a Klondike Gold Rush town, the North American West and early cinema, and constructed to a large degree out of images from the discovered and decaying nitrate trove, it’s a movie about a specific time and place and about the ghostly interconnectedness that links us inescapably to our past.
