Le Bled (Buildings in a Field)

One of Cohen’s many collaborations with Luc Santé, Le Bled is a film about Tangier, Morocco and a gargantuan construction project stretching across the horizon in all directions. (11 minutes, 2009, Super 8)

Opus Luminis et Hominis  (Works of Light and Man)

A portrait of Pamplona, this is a set of observations of place, people, and local customs. Named as a counterpoint to Opus Dei (lit. Work of God) who have a large presence in the town. (14 minutes, 2010, 16mm)
