The Making of Monsters is a Canadian short film, directed by John Greyson and released in 1991. Made while Greyson was a student at the Canadian Film Centre, the film's premise is that Bertolt Brecht is alive and living in Toronto, and actively interfering with the production of "Monsters", a heavily sanitized movie of the week about the 1985 death of Kenneth Zeller in a gaybashing attack. The film's cast includes Lee MacDougall as the film within a film's version of Zeller, while the roles of Brecht and Kurt Weill are played by talking fish. The film premiered at the 1991 Berlin International Film Festival, and was later screened at the 1991 Toronto International Film Festival and selected LGBT film festivals, including Vancouver's Out on Screen, Montreal's Image+Nation and Edmonton's The Voice and the Vision.
