While sitting at a diner (an appropriate place regarding the story) after one of the performances with the cast and the crew for the play, Gail (CHERYL) casually said, “Hey, wouldn’t it be fun to make this a movie?” Bruce, Matt, and Gail all immediately agreed that it would, indeed, be fun. More importantly, it became a mission to all of them as “it simply must be done!”
Matt soon contacted the story’s playwright, Roy Berkowitz, to ask him how he felt about 'Neitzsche' becoming a film. It didn’t take long for the two to become comrades in this quest to tell this story to a film audience. Roy’s blessing and excitement instantaneously ignited 'Neitzsche' to the fielding of our tremendous team of professionals who are committed to telling this story to a wider audience in film.
DIRECTOR’s NOTE – WHY IS 'NEITZSCHE 'SO IMPORTANT?
So many times, we see movies, hear stories, and read articles of revenge. For me, the most important
message that 'Neitzsche' offers is three-fold. First, the grace and courage it takes each of us to accept
ourselves and circumstances beyond our control rings through us as human beings in this story. Second,
to forgive others and ourselves also is a path each of us must take to happiness. Otherwise, we are
destined to a world of misery and inner turmoil. Third, through acceptance and forgiveness, we are
ultimately able to heal deep-rooted wounds to our souls and achieve inner peace. These are the themes
that 'Neitzsche' offers audiences: acceptance, forgiveness, and healing. This story must be told.
