Nazis to the Moon! is a campy fantasy short animation based on the bizarre historical fact that Nazi Germany developed plans during World War II to expand their budding rocket technology into a space program. The film's prelude shows Hitler's dreary world as he dreams about a more idyllic life on the Moon. Then, he dramatically announces his lunar destination to the masses, and promptly launches himself. Little does he know that the philosopher Nietzsche awaits him there, setting the stage for an inevitable conflict and symbolic separation of their disparaging philosophies.
Nazis to the Moon!, inspired by the collage art piece by Winston Smith "Nazis on the Moon," puts the absurd scenario of sending Hitler to the Moon into action.
