Lucy Cohen – Director

Lucy has worked in documentary filmmaking for more than 14 years after initially training as a print journalist. Directing principally for television in the UK, previous credits include Watch Me Disappear (Channel 4) and Modern Times: The Great British Garden Watch (BBC2). She also produced the critically-acclaimed Notes from the Inside (Channel 4) and Sectioned (BBC4).

After working with Pulse Films on the theatrical documentary, The Possibilities are Endless, Pulse are now producing her first feature-length documentary. Made with the support of the BFI and Creative England, Kingdom of Us, will be launched in Autumn 2017.

Whilst observational documentary is her passion, Lucy likes to experiment with different formats and textures to explore the psychological layers within stories and create stylistically interesting work. Alongside her long-form work, she has made short films for various charities, artists and institutions.

Next, she aims to draw on the skills and ideas she has developed making documentaries and use them within a narrative project.
