The Worp Reaction (1976) [Short]

UK (MIFF 1978 )
Director: Tony Trafford

Based on a short story by the American author, Lion Miller, the film tells of a mentally handicapped man who is widely regarded as a hopeless idiot.

Apparently fascinated by scrap metal, he accumulates a pile of it in his back garden and from it builds a structure that can fly. But nobody can discover how. Bombarded by experts, George Worp dismantles his machine and retires again to his own world.
