Aus dem Nichts
Out Of The Void
Might it be possible to tap into energy from space, from nothing, out of the void? In the 1920’s, Carl Schappeller claimed that he had invented a mechanism which could access it. Memories and documents lead us into a fictional world ... and eventually bring us to the present, focusing on the free energy researchers of today. A documentary-cum-feature film about the metamorphosis of a utopian idea. A cinematic exploration of the borders between belief and knowledge, vision and hubris.

Unearthing the Macrocosm in the Microcosm
In the Upper Austrian village of Aurolzmünster, Angela Summereder followed the traces of an inventive mind from the 1920s and 1930s. Whereas Karl Schappeller once dreamed of being able to utilise 'free energy', present-day researchers are now furnishing results. An interview with the filmmaker about her new work Out of the Void.
