Peter Mettler

Living and working between Canada and Switzerland, Peter Mettler melds intuitive-associative processes with drama, essay, experiment or documentation. A strong supporter of independent creativity, he has collaborated with numerous filmmakers, artists and musicians including Atom Egoyan, Fred Frith, Robert Lepage, Andreas Züst, Edward Burtynsky, Jennifer Baichwal, Michael Ondaatje.

His films and collaborations continue to hold a unique position within cinema and other disciplines, also resulting in works such as live image/sound mixing performance, photography and installations. Meditations on being, Mettlers films transform the inner worlds of their characters and audience alike, into sensorial cinematic experience.
