Benoit Cohen

After achitecture studies in Paris, Benoit Cohen went to New York University to study filmmaking. Back to France, he created his own production company SHADOWS FILMS. After a few short films, he directed his first feature film CAMELEONE in 1996.
Then between 2000 and 2014, he made five other feature films and three TV Series. He has been working with the same troop of actors and is concerned with the theme of life choices, which appears throughout his films as a major question.
His last movie, TU SERAS UN HOMME (You’ll Be A Man) was selected in more then 60 festivals around the world, won 31 awards and is now on NETFLIX.
Since 2014, he lives in Brooklyn, NY.
