The unknown X becomes a whole symphony of shapes. Watch the experimental X by Max Hattler.

In a universe where everything is by itself and yet can intersect with each other, cross-action seems the best way to solve an unknown equation.

Max Hattler is a multi-awarded moving image artist based in London and Germany. X was a commission screened at  Kings Cross Filling Station , on  a 10x15m screen of water rising from the canal.

It was also a nominee for the Animated Com Award at the 20th  Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film (ITFS, April 23-28, 2013).


Directed by Max Hattler, 2012. Animation by Matt Abbiss, Tony Comley, Valeria Fonseca, Max Hattler, Siobhan Mcelhinney, Luiz Stockler.

Sound and music by Eduardo Noya Schreus.
