In the 1920s, Carl Schappeller announced the discovery of free energy — energy generated from empty space — and gathered a group of followers who provided the financial support for his research. The project failed, but science has continued to pursue his idea in various forms. Aus dem Nichts discloses connections, breaks, and continuities in confrontation with the phenomenon and as a formally unconventional docu-fiction reflects on the question: What is reality, what is fiction?
