Night Mayor

Night Mayor is a 2009 short film written and directed by Guy Maddin.

Criterion calls it "a film of psychotropic, collagelike beauty, one that vividly illustrates its own concept of “ordinary things combined and made miraculous.”" Cinematical calls it "A beautifully conceived and executed piece marked by a dreamy narrative and intriguing imagery". Quiet Earth quotes the National Film Board of Canada:
The short tells 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.
