Stranger Says:

Artist Bill Morrison performs another aesthetically astonishing excavation of cinema’s past, piecing together a strange history from some 500 nitrate-stock films that were buried in subarctic territory in the Yukon. What can’t be recovered, however, is the First Nations hunting camp that rampant gold prospecting effectively displaced. The birth of commercial cinema (large-scale projectors, movie theaters) becomes, in this bizarre but true tale of one of the 20th century’s casualties of manifest destiny, a death of ritual for the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in tribe.
