Zoé Pelchat got her big break with Dominos, crowned Best Digital Series at the first edition of the Canneseries in 2018. After a bachelor’s degree in communications at Concordia University, she studied filmmaking at INIS. Her fiction projects, which she writes and directs, all have a very personal touch; a mix of darkness and humour, an aesthetic of imperfection and a deep love for humanity. Moon (Lune) is her first short film.
