He has also directed SITE SPECIFIC: THE LEGACY OF REGIONAL MODERNISM, and DEMOCRACY IN FRANCE and many documentary projects for institutions. He is interested in music and performance, architecture, contemporary Issues, Human Rights, Politics, and Public Affairs.

Kohn's short fiction projects include MORE THAN SNOW, I KNOW YOU, ROSA X-RAYS JOE, FREEDOM ISN'T FREE and SEA LEVEL INFERNO. He is currently developing a completed feature screenplay. 

For 10 years, Kohn has hosted a monthly film screening series called SPEAKEASY CINEMA.

After the film is screened, Kohn, the filmmaker guest, and the audience engage about the ART.
