WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID
ABOUT NACHTMASCHINE

"Experimental video artist Max Hattler utilises distorted urban imagery and neon glare to create this entrancing short." BBC Film Network

"A hypnotic dance of simple forms ... an original interpretation of the ordinary world that surrounds us."
Fresh Film Fest

"Ein abstrakter Musikfilm. Die zu elegant-jazzigem Sound optisch durchgestylte Arbeit überzeugt unter anderem durch ihre interessante Technik. Es kommen ausschließlich digitale Fotografien - zum Teil nächtliche Lichtzeichnungen - zum Einsatz, die rhythmisch passend arrangiert werden."
Vienna Independent Shorts
