4/5

Review

‘Midnight Sun’, co-created by Maverick Christian and Victor Soulez Lariviere, unravels a mysterious tale within a world of 24/7 sunlight. As the protagonist (Madeleine Bax) traverses a commercial city, her discovery of a cryptic letter adds an unexpected layer of intrigue. The letter, holds secrets that beckon curiosity and deepen the film’s enigmatic and dystopian quality.

Crafted with an experimental edge, Christian’s static cinematography captures the essence of the sun-drenched cityscape. Each frame draws viewers into a world where time seems to stand still, echoing the protagonist’s sense of isolation and introspection.

Interwoven with the visual narrative is Magaajyia Silberfeld’s narration, which lends a voice to the unspoken mysteries that permeate the story. Silberfeld’s delivery adds an ethereal quality to the 90 second short, leaving audiences hooked by the enigma.

The directors’ artistic vision shines through in every aspect of the film, from its avant-garde style to its poetic imagery. As the narrative unfolds, ambiguity reigns supreme, inviting viewers to interpret the story’s myriad layers in their own unique way.
