Forgotten Silver is a mockumentary which details the prodigious life of "lost" filmmaker Colin McKenzie and his incredible advances that were lost to history...until now. This supergenius filmmaker, posthumously inducted into the pantheon of cinema greats, made incredible advances in filmmaking technology, supposedly making a talkie in 1908 and using color film in 1911, but madness and poverty and the usual industry tolls drove him into obscurity.

One of Colin MacKenzie's "innovations" in this film is the first feature length film, which he makes in 1908. It was not until after the completion of this film that another, The Story of the Kelly Gang (1906), resurfaced and was discovered to be the real title holder for "first ever feature length film".

Peter Jackson and Costa Boeates decided to make this great mockumentary about a man called Colin McKenzie, a man who invented such things as color film, audio film and above all, made the first full length feature movie.
Apparently it was quite a successful hoax in New Zealand, people really did buy it. And I really can't blame them, as most of the fabricated film material really looks like almost hundred years old, almost destroyed film.
And there are some very convincing famous film people, like Sam Neil, telling their knowledge of this McKenzie.
Even the tone of the film isn't actually very funny, even thought there are some things in it that are so absurd, that they make you laugh.
Over all well made mockumentary.
