This mid-week movie comes courtesy of the National Film Board of Canada, who have recently posted up Guy Maddin’s Night Mayor in its entirety. In this short, Guy Maddin presents the story of inventor Nihad Ademi, who harnesses the power of the Aurora Borealis in 1939 Winnipeg. Ademi uses the power to broadcast images of Canada to its own citizens from coast to coast, but in the process angers the government.

The quasi-documentary film was produced to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the NFB and was made using footage from the NFB’s extensive archive. Check out this interview with Guy Maddin about the film on the NFB blog too.
