My friend Nietzsche

Lucas follows his teacher’s advice to do more reading, in an attempt to improve his appalling grades. He stumbles across a copy of Friedrich Nietzsche’s ‘Thus Spoke Zarathustra’ at a local dump, sparking an epic journey of growth and discovery. Lucas’ mission is not a solo endeavour as the whole community is brought in to the fray, raising as many questions as answers to engage his inquisitive mind.

An atmospheric, delightfully light hearted yet thought provoking film, My Friend Nietzsche, playfully invites us to explore the amazing potential for learning possessed by the young. Director, Da Silva, creates an engaging narrative using broad characters and settings to explore complex themes in hugely enjoyable style.
