When a 17 year old girl begins suffering from severe nightmares the line between reality and dark imagination blurs, bringing with it a hideous creature only she can see. DN spoke to Director AKIZ at this year’s London Film Festival about his dark tale of unreality Der Nachtmahr and learnt how he brought realism to his fantastical feature nightmare whilst augmenting the film’s abrasive techno soundtrack through the use of sonic experiments.
Der Nachtmahr (2015)
After attending a rave party, a teenage girl forms a bond with a strange monster as she suffers a slow chaotic mental breakdown.
Even though Der Nachtmahr is really artificial in that it’s fantastical I was always trying to make it as realistic & authentic as possible.
