From Phase IV, The Widow, One-Eyed Jacks, Nil By Mouth and Barbara Loden’s astonishing Wanda there is a whole series of remarkable films by filmmakers who, for numerous reasons, stepped behind the camera just the once.

Offering a short overview of the sole directorial efforts that cast a sizeable shadow on the film landscape, and which in some cases seemingly creatively paralysed their originators, One Film Wonders chronicles these wonderful bursts of often very personal filmmaking and labours of love.
