A couple struggles with mental illness.


Director's Bio:

Wisconsin native, Anthony Montoya loved movies since a young age. Obsessed with learning how movies were made he started studying films at the age of 7 by watching any and all behind the scenes. This obsession quickly turned to passion when he was shown how to use a video camera. He made several films starring his brother and sisters and anyone else who was available. During high school he was giving the opportunity to write and direct an original play. Since high school he has directed a few TV commercials and recently the short film "R3Peat".

Director's Statement:

"R3peat" was the result of people mistaking mental disease as a 'choice' and not an actual hindrance. The film highlights how OCD also has a profound affect on others close to the person. It is a very personal story and the cast and crew were equally invested in telling this story.
