Visitor rating
4.0 from 0 reviews

Jackson's mockumentary finds the director and co-director Botes "discovering" the lost films of Colin McKenzie, a pioneering New Zeland filmmaker of the early 1900s. These include McKenzie's epic film "Salome" which the duo decide to restore. The entire escapade is a fiction, including the silent film footage that's shown. The tape also includes the short film "Signing Off" about the final show for a radio DJ and the special request he has trouble fulfilling.
