In this meditation on cinema’s past, director Bill Morrison (Decasia) pieces together the bizarre true history of a long-lost collection of 533 nitrate film prints from the early 1900s discovered in 1978 in Dawson City, the center of the Canadian Gold Rush and the final stop on for a distribution chain that sent prints and newsreels to the Yukon.
