In 1978, a cache of long-lost silent films was discovered in the unlikeliest of places—buried in a swimming pool in the remote Yukon Territory, where they had been preserved by permafrost. Archival filmmaker Bill Morrison (Decasia) uses imagery culled from these literally unearthed treasures to illustrate the stranger-than-fiction tale of how they were lost and found, a wide-ranging gold rush yarn that spans generations. “An instantaneously recognizable masterpiece” (New York Times).
