Experience a unique perspective on a Canadian gold rush town

Dawson City: Frozen Time, a documentary that debuted last year, screens at the Garneau Theatre on July 31, August 2 and August 3. The documentary features the true history of a collection of 500 films from the 1910s and 1920s which had been lost for decades before being uncovered in a sub-arctic swimming pool.

Check out a new exhibition at Latitude 53

Calgary artist Kale Vandenbroek’s exhibition “Autospect” opened at Latitude 53 on July 28. The exhibition examines the self, and Vandenbroek’s process involved pasting an image down and wearing it away, reflecting on narratives of introspection and a cast of personalities.
