Billy Roisz on „Happy Doom“/ interview

The filmmaker, musician and performer was born in Vienna, Austria in 1967. Since the late 1990s, she has been intensely engaged with the media of video and sound. Her work focuses on experimenting with the connection between auditory and visual stimuli. She was co-organiser of the Reheat Festival (2007-2015) and is co-organising the sporadically held institut5haus exhibitions. Her films zounk!, darkroom and THE (co-directed with Dieter Kovačič) have screened in the Berlinale Shorts competition. In 2022, she was accepted as a member of the Vienna Secession.

What was your starting point for “Happy Doom”?

The idea popped up during a symposium lecture about ‚black holes‘ at the ‚Institut for Science and Research‘ in Vienna in Summer 2022.
Therefor the working title for this film was actually ‚Black Hole  Rapsody‘ 🙂

Do you have a favourite moment in the film? Which one and why this one?

Actually no – the whole film is ONE moment.

What do you like about the short form?
I also like a lot the longer formats, and work with them too – be it in film, music or live performance – it always depends on what and how and where and why…. 😉
