Felix Austria! had its premiere at Canada’s prestigious Hot Docs festival. It tells the story of Felix Pfeifle, a Europhile and aesthete whose fascination with the Hapsburg dynasty leads him to an eventual meeting with the last heir of the holy Roman emperors: Otto Van Hapsburg himself. The film is shot in multiple far flung locations, globetrotting from California and New York to Germany, Austria, and Serbia.
I had a lot of fun with the score, working with a great Balkan Brass band for much of it, alongside music supervisor Thomas Golubic.
