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 Dawson City, located about 350 miles south of the Arctic Circle. Using these permafrost protected, rare silent films and newsreels, archival footage, interviews and historical photographs to tell the story, and accompanied by an enigmatic score by Sigur Rós collaborator and composer Alex Somers (Captain Fantastic), Dawson City: Frozen Time depicts a unique history of a Canadian 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 and displaced.

The life and work of Robert Frank - as a photographer and filmmaker - are so intertwined that they're one and the same, and the vast amount of territory he's covered, from "The Americans" to landmark films like Pull My Daisy (with the Beats) and Cocksucker Blues (with the Rolling Stones) is intimately registered in his now formidable body of work. Don't Blink is a fast and fleeting impressionistic profile of the life of the Swiss-born man who is still standing on ground of his own making at the age of 90.
