Born in Sherbrooke in 1984, the filmmaker and musician Frederic Cheezo is a Quebecer with Anishnabe origins. He grew up in Louvicourt, near Val-d'Or, and then settled in Magog.
At the age of 19, he became an itinerant and for three years he wandered between Quebec city and Montreal, but carried on dedicating himself to his three passions: music, film and skateboarding. These difficult years allowed him to found Karmagedon, a grind metal band, with his friend Josh Amendula. He uses this music to express his grief and helplessness regarding his Aboriginal reality. Later, Frederic returns to his roots by joining the Buffalo Hat Singers, a group of traditional and contemporary drummers .
