Chiles en Nogada
is a traditional Mexican dish. Its colours are those of the national flag and of its history too: red, white and green. In 2009, Billy Roisz travelled through Mexico, accompanied by friends and music colleagues, and Chiles en Nogada is the film about that trip. Proceeding from the music, the director creates colours out of spaces and worlds out of colours. The opposite, the other, and its reflection are the film’s essence and what sets it apart.

Billy Roisz lives and works in Vienna. She specialises on feedback video and video/sound interaction in the context of cinema, live performance and installations. She is a member of NotTheSameColor (with dieb13), AVVA (with Toshimaru Nakamura), My Kingdom for a Lullaby (with Michaela Grill/Christof Kurzmann/Martin Siewert) and silly (with akoasma). In 2009, Billy Roisz won the Republic of Austria Advancement Award for Innovative Cinema.
