HEAR MORE ABOUT NATHAN SPITERI

As an eight-year-old, Nathan Spiteri was in his hometown of Queanbeyan, NSW when a middle-aged man followed him into the change rooms of the local swimming pool area. This incident became day one of a three-year relationship between Nathan and the 40-year-old man. This man told Nathan that his family hated him. Nathan visited this man regularly and exchanged ‘I love yous’. His family and friends had no clue. Eventually Nathan moved to New York to pursue his dream of acting. Nathan finally told his family who all reacted different to the news. In 2016 Nathan’s New-York-based psychologist suggested he write his experience of abuse down as a form of therapy. Over the next two years Nathan did what his therapist asked and the result was his first screenplay, Toy Cars. For Nathan, writing the screenplay was not only therapeutic and purgative, but provided a chance to put some closure around his harrowing story.
