A filmmaker with a strong social consciousness, Ève Lamont dedicates her work to real-life issues, favouring the «cinéma direct» approach. She specifically targets the many by-products of our market-driven society who show evidence of this in their ignorance and apathy towards reality, the concept of fighting for a cause, and social justice. For 15 years, Lamont has been producing documentaries almost exclusively on what she sees as consequences that society will inevitably have to face. Two of the more notable of these are the full-length films Squat! (2002) and Méchante job (2001). For more than 10 years, Ève Lamont has worked as a camera operator and director of freelance photography for several television networks and production companies. For a few years, she worked in freelance external news reporting for Télé-Québec.
