Jack Brown Genius explores an obsessive flight of fancy. The spirit of a thousand year old monk (Stuart Devenie) inhabits the mind of modern-day inventor (Tim Balme), who is inspired to turn the idea of human-powered flight into reality. Along the way he creates havoc for his pal Dennis (Marton Csokas), steals his girlfriend (Nicola Murphy), incinerates the factory of his boss, and incurs the wrath of the boss's financial backer (Lisa Chappell). The fantasy won NZ Film and Television Awards for actor Balme, the movie's second set of composers, and director Tony Hiles. Hiles writes about the film's troubled journey here
