NOTE: I'D LIKE TO PITCH TO POV FOR SHORT DOC ON BLACK-MALE ACHIEVEMENT & WAS TOLD TO MENTION THAT HERE. THANKS! Shannon Cohn was born and raised in rural Mississippi. The roots and realities of such an upbringing keep her compelled to tell authentic stories that inspire and challenge an audience to look beyond differences to the common threads that make us all human. She produced the short narrative films Sulphur Mountain with Mark Webber, The Memento Mori Project with Paz de la Huerta and The Potential Wives of Norman Mao with George Takei. Shannon produced the award-winning feature documentaries Neurons to Nirvana, Being in the World and 2012 Time for Change with Sting, David Lynch and Ellen Page. She produced and appears on camera in the documentary series, Sea Nation, which follows her and a friend as they sell their possessions and hitchhike on boats across the world. The show currently airs in over 60 countries on Discovery Channel International and National Geographic. Shannon attended the Graduate Film Program at NYUs Tisch School of the Arts and has a law degree from Vanderbilt University.
