Jazz Winnipeg and the Winnipeg New Music Festival are presenting the world premiere of the live score award-winning director Bill Morrison's Dawson City: Frozen Time, one of the most unique cultural experiences of the year.

The film's score, composed by and performed with Sigur Rós collaborator Alex Somers will be brought to life with sixteen singers, eight strings, percussions, piano and laptop. 

The now-famous, once-lost Dawson City Collection was uncovered in 1978 when a bulldozer working its way through a parking lot dug up a horde of film cans. Morrison draws on these permafrost-protected, rare silent films and newsreels, pairing them with archival footage, interviews, historical photographs, and an enigmatic score by Sigur Rós collaborator and composer Alex Somers. Dawson City: Frozen Time depicts the unique history of this Canadian Gold Rush town by chronicling the life cycle of a singular film collection through its exile, burial, rediscovery, and salvation.

Somers gained notoriety through his work with Icelandic experimental post-rock band Sigur Ros and partner Jónsi's critically-acclaimed self-titled solo project. The composer, producer, and visual artist has worked as co-producer, mixer, and engineer on several Sigur Rós releases including Valtari, Kveikur, and Brennisteinn.

Moshe Safdie,The Power of Architecture
Director: Donald Winkler
2004, 91 minutes, English

After graduating from McGill University in 1961 and apprenticing with Louis Kahn in Philadelphia, Safdie returned to Montreal to oversee the master plan for the 1967 Universal Exposition. His design of Habitat 67 lifted the Israel-Canadian architect to the top ranks of Canadian architects, earning him international recognition. This documentary takes us to Boston, where Safdie teaches at Harvard, showing some of his recent projects. It also follows him on his first visit to Israel in fourteen years, where he works on the plans for the Mamilla neighbourhood of Jerusalem, a long-term project designed to bring the city’s Jewish and Arab communities together.

Winnipeg March acknowledges that we march on Treaty 1 territory and that the land on which we gather is the traditional territory of Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene peoples, and the homeland of the Métis Nation.

We march in solidarity with women and human rights groups from across the world. We march to show that the progress made in 2017 was not enough. There is still work to do to protect and advance the rights of women, and the rights of all vulnerable citizens in our country. If you think 2017 was a loud year for women, you ain't seen nothing yet!

Women’s organizations in Winnipeg invite you to a timely conversation about women’s issues and practical tools for community organizing and lobbying in Winnipeg.
