To celebrate the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra’s New Music Festival World Premiere of Bill Morrison’s extraordinary new film Dawson City: Frozen Time, presented by Jazz Winnipeg in association with the Winnipeg Film Group, enjoy this in-depth moderated public conversation and master class with one of the most important independent filmmakers in America. Bill Morrison is a Guggenheim fellow, an Alpert Award for the Arts recipient and his theatrical projection design has been recognized with two Bessie awards and an Obie Award. Dawson City: Frozen Time is a meditation on cinema’s past wherein Morrison pieces together the bizarre true history of a long-lost collection of 533 nitrate film prints from the early 1900s. Discovered buried under the permafrost in a former Canadian Gold Rush town, their story conjures the forgotten ties between the fledgling film industry and Manifest Destiny in North America. Greg Klymkiw, the producer of Guy Maddin’s first three legendary feature films and the longtime senior creative consultant at Norman Jewison’s Canadian Film Centre promises a sprightly on-stage interview with Morrison.

Blending clips with a live, onstage interview and a moderated Q&A with WFG Executive Director Greg Klymkiw, this will be a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with this extraordinary film artist.
