Yaron Cohen (1985, Nijmegen) studied directing documentary at the University of the Arts Utrecht, The Netherlands. After his studies, he has directed and produced documentaries, which were selected for several international film festivals and broadcasted on Dutch television (VPRO, Human, 2DOC).  Often his documentaries tell intimate, observing, stories about people, their personal struggles and their resilience, which show the human side of macro-social and political developments. Besides making documentaries, Yaron's love for storytelling outs itself also in other visual languages such as analog photography and fictional films.
