“Alles hat Grenzen, NUR DER MONDFISCH NICHT” is an environmental film musical, in which nature acts and speaks in a diversity of voices. Surfacing evocatively from micro- and macrocosmic layers, she resonates with water as the source of life and resounds as exploited resource. She echoes from the trenches of an inverted world and speaks out as a human being. Reverberating through ecological-cultural depths, images, sounds and associations push to light, giving shape to a vision of humanity being in tune with nature.
The film is accompanied by the publication of Gerald Nestler’s video collection, The Derivative Condition, on Weird Economies platform.
