Peter Mettler

Born in 1958 in Ontario, Canada. Filmmaker and interdisciplinary artist. He is a director, cameraman, editor, screenwriter and producer.

A book about his work Making the Invisible Visible was published in 1995, and in 2006 his film and photographic achievements were documented in the book Of This Place and Elsewhere, The Films and Photography of Peter Mettler (by Jerry White) published by the Toronto International Film Festival.
