A cinematic poem about Europe at night - a portrait of the nocturnal going-ons across the continent from a quiet television studio to a complex surveillance room. What emerges is a picture of mass mechanisation: a world of surveillance, machines and electricity. Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Nikolaus Geyrhalter shows our society in a new light in this thought-provoking, evocative film essay. 

“Austrian film director Nikolaus Geyrhalter makes documentaries with neither commentary nor music, bearing witness to a sick world”

-Guardian
