In 2008, Jef Monté graduated from the AKV St. Joost in Breda with the documentary ‘Fancy suits, wet soils’. His heart is at documentary filmmaking. The reality sometimes is more strange or complicated than you could have thought. The whole dynamic process of documentary filmmaking is what attracts Jef. His subject interests are paradoxes, the significance of the past for the present, people with distance from society, music, art and culture. He gets his ideas for his films from everywhere and he finds the search for the right form just as interesting as the subject. As Jef got epilepsy on his 29th, he felt the urge to make a film about this to give insight in what it means to have this disease.
