Dawson City: Frozen Time + Q&A
CTBA – Directed by Bill Morrison
Fri 27 Oct 2017 at 17.45
Supported by Film Hub North West Central in partnership with North West Film Archive, Manchester Metropolitan University and Manchester Science Festival, this screening’s been a long time coming.
Lost for half a century, 500 films were discovered buried under a subarctic swimming pool in Canada’s remote Yukon Territory. Dawson City: Frozen Time is a feature film that quite literally pieces together history and features rare footage from the early silent era.
Falling on UNESCOs World Day for Audiovisual Heritage and celebrating the North West Film Archive’s 40th anniversary, this is the perfect way to celebrate the very best of restoration and preservation in film.
Following the screening at HOME there will be a Q&A with filmmaker Bill Morrison, archivists and conservation specialists giving the opportunity for audiences to find out more about the scrupulous and fascinating process behind this one-of-a-kind creation. The Q&A will be hosted by HOME’s Artistic Director of Visual Arts, Sarah Perks.
