Louis Mouchet (born 25 March 1957) is a Swiss independent film-maker born in Geneva, Switzerland.


Louis Mouchet spent his early childhood in Tunisia, where his parents went to teach after the country's independence. "It was and still is a lost paradise."[1]

After studying literature at the University of Geneva, Louis Mouchet graduated from the London International Film School in 1983. His first professional job was an assignment for the Red Cross.[2] This led to a successful collaboration that continues to this day. It has been extended to other humanitarian and international organizations.

His first documentary was the result of a proposal from François Simon's widow to co-direct a film about the legendary actor.[3] [4] This first step led Louis Mouchet to write and direct many film and television documentaries.
