Thus Spoke Zarathustra
A DramatizationStreaming Video - 2012
In Thus Spoke Zarathustra Friedrich Nietzsche uses the title character as a vehicle for his own radical concepts about the human potential for transcendence. This program, filmed in conjunction with the Goethe Institute, is a dramatization of Nietzsche's epic work. The 1994 production is drawn from parts I through III of the Kaufmann translation and retains key elements of the novel while building upon its themes. Nuanced deliveries from the actors and minimalist sets give the performance a pleasingly contemporary feel without sacrificing the grandeur of the original text; Nietzsche's ideas come through with enhanced significance for the modern world.
