Peter Jackson discovers a chest full of old film by unknown pioneer genius of New Zealand film, Colin McKenzie. McKenzie's life is outlined in documentary fashion, through a series of interviews and original film footage. You may start doubting the veracity of this film, when it is revealed that McKenzie made his own cameras, cooked up his own cellulose nitrate, and made emulsion from egg-whites! The film ends with a wonderful simulacrum of McKenzie's masterpiece, Salome, for which the filmmaker receives belated international acclaim. See this film, only if you love movies and moviemaking.
