"Hallo freut mich sie kennenzulernen" says Naeve... the knife.

What happens when you give an inanimate object a pair of eyes and a name?

Do you become friend? or foe?

The Story

'My Best Friend The Knife' is a story that delves into the unglamorous depths of a creative’s mind in the height of their depressive spiral.


Mia wanders between her lack of energy and disillusionment about the future and she toys with the intrusive thought of suicide…alas, she becomes struck with an idea; give death a name, give death a pair of eyes, look into them and becomes unlikely friends with the enemy.

Meet The Makers

We are a small independent creative collective making our first film together. We are here to tell bold stories unapologetically by a rich cohort of talent of Filipino and small town British backgrounds.
