54 Hours/Night Mayor

54 Hours marks the 100th anniversary of the Newfoundland sealing disaster. Among many other things, it involves a bloody (and controversial) industry; the exploitative working conditions of pre-industrial capitalism; a sealing crew caught on the ice during a once-in-a-generation storm; fateful bad luck and casual stupidity and callous disregard; acts of perseverance and sacrifice that beggar description; and the deaths of 78 men over the course of a 54-hour ordeal.

Night Mayor takes us behind the scenes of Guy Maddin's 2009 film about Nihad Ademi, an inventor who harnesses the power of the aurora borealis and his attempts to broadcast images of Canada to its own citizens.
