Lionel Baier

Born in Lausanne in 1975 in a Swiss family of Polish origins, Lionel Baier programs et co-manages the Rex Cinema of Aubonne since 1992, before studing humanities at the University of Lausanne (1995-1999). Following the documentary Celui au pasteur and La Parade (Our History), he directs his first feature film in 2004, Garçon stupide. His next films are Comme des voleurs (à l’Est) – first episode of a tetralogy that continues with Les Grandes Ondes (à l’Ouest), then Un autre homme or La vanité in a filmography of fictions and documentaries in several formats. Director of the Movies department at the ECAL (Art school of Lausanne) since 2002, he co-founds Bande à part Films in 2009 and is the vice-president the Swiss Cinemathèque’s board of administration.
