“I’m the caretaker, the mayor, the sheriff, the judge, and the undertaker [of Ballarat],” Novak says in Mickey Todiwala and Monika Delgado’s short documentary, The Mayor of Ballarat. “I like it out here.

"The Mayor of Ballarat" was directed by Mickey Todiwala and Monika Delgado. It is part of The Atlantic Selects, an online showcase of short documentaries from independent creators, curated by The Atlantic.
