Two years ago, Beverly Hills, California-based Multicom acquired some of the Arthur Cohn library, which consists of seven films, six of which have now been fully restored in 4K.
The Swiss-born 95-year-old Cohn is an American independent film producer. Throughout his long career, which began in 1961, he has produced 26 films, six of which have won Academy Awards.
The Cohn films acquired by Multicom span the period between 1962 and 1999. They are:
Sky Above, Mud Below: Directed by Pierre-Dominique Gaisseau, the film won the 1962 Oscar for Best Documentary.
