Jozef Devillé, says he has chosen his studies as a documentary maker, because the film school was closest to his home. He studied Audiovisual Arts (documentary) at the RITCS in Brussels. His greatest production to date is undoubtedly The Sound of Belgium, a film that evolved from a search for the origin of a local music genre to an exploration of the true soul of the Belgians. Looking beyond the globe, his fascination with projects and movements is awakened, which are often dismissed as "utopian". As an independent documentary maker, he travels around the world to further understand these movements and their ideas and then share his discoveries with the spectators.
