Draw down the sun. Dig up the gold.
The urge to relieve a winter valley of permanent shadow and find gold in alluvial gravel are part of a long history of desire and extraction in the far Canadian north. Cancan dancers, curlers, smelters, former city officials and a curious cliff-side mirrored disc congregate to form a town portrait. Shot in location in Dawson City, Yukon Territory.
