Independent Film Week: THE NATURE OF NICHOLAS

SAT, NOV 29 / 11 pm
Dir. Jeff Erbach | Canada 2002 | 90min. | 35mm

A stunning feature set on the Canadian prairies, THE NATURE OF NICHOLAS is the tale of a young boy wrestling with an attraction to his best friend and tormented by the ghost of his father. Twelve-year-old Nicholas is the focus of this unique coming-of-age story about the tumult of nascent sexuality and a boy’s struggle to reconcile his desire with what’s expected of him.

Jeff Erbach’s The Nature of Nicholas: repressed desire and macabre acts (from TimeOut Magazine, 2002)

——————-

The Nature of Nicholas is Jeff Erbach’s first feature film, but by no means his first foray into writing and directing. He has made several short films, including Monday With the Martins, Under Chad Valley, Soft Like Me, Gavin Frogboy and Mr. Twenty Five Cents, which have had success at festivals around the world. Jeff is also well known for his work on a number of music videos. In addition, he has been a juror for the Academy of Cinema & Television and the Manitoba Arts Council, and continues to serve as a presenter, lecturer and instructor for various festivals and programs.
