About Kathi

I am a storyteller. I explore how the characters I create navigate the transformational turning points in their lives. But then, that's really my story. You see, I was a child prodigy headed toward the concert stage when I picked up my Dad's 8mm camera and there was no turning back. The destination was no longer Carnegie Hall...it was Hollywood.

  • Reflections of a Life

    Reflections of a Life (2006)
    Film (Short and Drama) Director "Reflections of a Life" is an intimate portrait of a woman's life. This narrative short film chooses an experimental approach that confines the story to a single location, as well as positioning the camera in one fixed spot, all with the intent to maximize the emotion and intimacy the audience feels. How much more personal can you get than to spend time with a woman, facing herself in the bathroom mirror? For this is where she puts on her public face and confronts her private fears alone. To further amplify the drama, the film takes the heroine through a life-changing experience ... the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. In this way, as well as through the eyes of her family, lover and closest friends, we truly come to know this woman, Taylor, in a manner usually reserved for only the most special people in our lives. Thus, the filmmaker's vision is accomplished: that the audience will walk out of the screening of this movie feeling as though they have a sister, mother, wife, ... Written by Kathi Carey
