Foraging in one of his ancestor’s garden, director Peter Jackson stumbles upon an impressive number of film reels. They are the work of Colin McKenzie, a forgotten filmmaker, whose rediscovery seems to be a major event in cinema history. Unless…

After his gore trilogy (Bad Taste, The Feebles and Braindead) and the lesser known Heavenly Creatures, the filmmaker that put New zealand on the map becomes a cinema archeologist and unearths the work of Colin McKenzie, a true pioneer of primitive cinema, who before everybody else singlehandedly invented the grammar of filmmaking. Too good to be true !
