Read Kate’s recent interview in Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls.
She talks about directing the short film “A Sari for Pallavi

Amy Poehler's Smart Girls

I would say be humble. Check your ego at the door. For me it’s all about putting the focus on the other person. If you think about this as a community, how can you connect two people that you know? All of the insecurities about yourself go away because you’re focusing on making someone else better

TUNNEL VISION short at festivals

Kate @ YoFi

It was a  pleasure traipsing around Philadelphia with actor David Blatt in the summertime filming this touching roadtrip short. Now the US is getting a peek at it during festivals. I was able to catch up with the director Joseph Kraemer at YoFiFest in Yonkers. Next it will play the Alexandria Film Festival.


ROSEHILL is playing at two more festivals!

 *SIDEWALK FILM FESTIVAL (Birmingham, AL, August 30)

“The truly refreshing aspect of Rosehill is that it allows for platonic sensuality between these friends while exploring need and desire in relationships. What evolves is a flowing, heartfelt story of the changing nature of friendships and partnerships as we age and evolve.” 

     *NEW JERSEY FILM FESTIVAL (New Brunswick, NJ, September 11, opening night*)

“Expertly weaving together improvised and scripted scenes, Rosehill is an intimate feature film that delves into the lives of two women.”

Rosehill behind the scenesFull red carpet premiere details on ATLFF website. I will be there for the Q&A afterwards with director Brigitta Wagner and some of the production team. Hope to see you there!


ROSEHILL World Premiere announced!

ROSEHILL will have its World Premiere at Atlanta Film Festival in March!

“Old friends Alice and Katriona haven’t seen each other since Alice got a job as a sex researcher in rural Indiana. When New York actress Katriona pays a sudden visit, Alice thinks her small-town boredom has come to an end. Little does she know that Katriona is harboring something. The two women set out on a local journey that leads them, unexpectedly, back to themselves. Rocks, women, motion, metamorphosis, and erotica. Part road trip, part meditation, part improvised fiction, part documentary, Rosehill is a film about crisis and eternal change, the darkness and resilience of the human spirit.”

Directed by Brigitta Wagner
Starring: Josephine Decker, Kate Chamuris, Ken Farrell, John Machesky, Jacob Emery
