Zoel Aeschbacher was born in Paris (France) in 1993. Of Swiss and Vietnamese origin, he grew up in Switzerland. He has both Swiss and US citizenship. It is through music that he begins to take interest into video. Subsequently, with the democratization of the internet, the discovery of the french artistic collective : „Kourtrajme“, pushes him to make his cinematic experience in the street, surrounded by his friends. In 2016, he and Christophe M. Saber – another director from the same school – founded the „Apollo Projects“ association to contribute to the Swiss cinema in their own way. In 2017 he graduated in cinema from ECAL (Ecole Cantonale d’Art de Lausanne). BONOBO is his graduation film. He is currently established in Paris.
