'A GOOD DAY TO DIE: HOKA HEY' SCREENING
Join MyDocs for the documentary film screening of 'A Good Day to Die: Hoka Hey' followed by a special Q&A by the filmmaker, Harold Monfils. Monfils met Jason P. Howe in 2010, and was inspirted by his work and life story that read like the adventure of Tin Tin. Howe came with a plethora of adventure stories, though riddled with PTSD by what he has seen through the years on the job. After a month of discussing the project, Howe began flying to Kuala Lumpur to film his interviews. Monfils was wary of overstepping the intimacy he and his subject had developed, making sure not to cause additional trauma as Howe recollected the events; and it took a long time for Monfils to earn his trust. The interview pertaining details of Howe becoming romantically involved with a paramilitary assassin who was eventually killed took 4 years to be recounted on camera.
Monfils is an independent filmmaker with more than 20 years of international exposure in advertising. He has won a wallpaper of awards for his works and for Laya Project, a documentary dedicated to the survivors of 2004 Asian tsunami. He is a world traveler with an insatiable curiosity about life. He was born in Portugal, has a Dutch passport, grew up in Mexico and he currently lives in Asia.
