Ari A. Cohen

Biography

For nearly two decades, Ari A. Cohen has been creating important Canadian and international social, political, environmental and cultural films, including Too Colourful for the League, Being Osama, The Instrument Bank, and The Family Farm, an essay documentary profiling farmers from across the country decrying the food industry’s corporate practices and calling for a return to the land, and The Uluit, a five-part documentary series on a women’s hockey team and the inhabitants of an Inuit village. He also authored Falafelism, an international documentary about the politics of food in the Middle East, and biographies The Jackie Washington Story (a film about a struggling but monumental musician) and The World’s a Stage with John Neville (a film about an actor that pursued theatre over Hollywood).  Before entering the film world, Ari was a Director at a prominent Montreal performing and visual arts center.
