MACHINE FAIR
Nebe in a clever move takes the reason prisoner, only to appoint reason to be the king of his game of chess. He calls for a close review of the encyclopedia of our philosophical and cultural foundations. In his opinion reason has the potential to direct a path away from the horror vacui he is depicting.

ORNITHOLOGICAL ROBOTS

Birds are strange species. Sometimes they bewitch us with their voices. But there are moments, too, when they threaten us by flying around our heads or just by their appearance. Ornithological Robots is a film about this and the idea of making robots or machines with birdlike apparance producing senseless movement and impressing us by nothing else then their apparance- almost like true birds in nature.
