Petter Aaberg was born and raised in Oslo, Norway. He graduated from Nordland College of Art and Film in 2017. During his time in college, he went out looking for his voice through the documentary genre and the spontaneous exploration of human interactions. After filming team building seminars, youth parties, and school classes he started to feel that he managed to capture important and emotional moments.

His documentary "Nightcrawlers", which was co-directed with Sverre Kvamme, won the RTS award at the 2020 Pitching du Réels award of Visions du Réel. For the last 4 years he has been working on his first feature length documentary on the subject mental health and suicide among young people.
