Stoff (1) is part of a series of films made for television and aimed at young audiences. The series was dedicated to the history and techniques behind the production of objects, materials (paper, letterpress, fabrics, etc.), highlighting the differences between artisanal and industrial production and the labour and economic relations involved in each of these methods of making things.

Die Römerstraße im Aostatal, which was unavailable in its complete version for many years and is presented here in a newly restored version, is a film documenting the area of the Italian Aosta Valley through its political, economic and cultural history. It is another remarkable work in which Nestler travels along the Roman road, a central artery used as a trade route for millennia, unearthing its history to better shed light on its present, looking at various aspects such as the traditions of craftsmanship and agriculture or the impact of industrial closures. The film makes a masterful use of sound, with the local dialect and traditional music playing an important role.
