Nebel is based on the poems to childhood by famed Austrian lyrical aertist Ernst Jandl who tried to write these poems in a language used by children, including nursery rhymes and prayers. Müller uses found footage and amateur films from his own childhood to create a visual equivalent to these poems.

(Matthias Müller)

Müller takes up Jandl´s challenge of looking at things backwards and forwards, and translates his paradoxical logic into filmic terms. He successfully avoids the pitfall of stringing together one-to-one illustrations of the poet´s imagery. Instead, he has chosen personal associations chat are far more subtle.
