  • VALLEND-duingras-avond
  • Vallend Documentary epileptische aanval
  • VALLEND-lach

How would it be to suddenly loose consciousness? To loose control of your own body and life? That an attack is constantly on the prowl? Director Jef Monté knows how this feels as he developed epilepsy recently. In this documentary he follows a young woman who wants to live an independent life, but who is prevented from this because of her epilepsy. The film shows the struggle she must make to get control of her own life again.

Regisseur-Jef-Monte

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.
