About Kathleen

I am a French born and raised writer and director based in Sydney, Australia. I have written, directed and produced my first short in 2011, a film noir called "Lie to Me", which was funded by Screen NSW/Metro Screen. The film premiered at the Montreal World Film Festival and has screened at several festivals including the St Louis International Film Festival.
Since, I have directed two more short films that have screened at various festivals including the Short Film Corner of the Cannes Film Festival, The New York Lift Off Film Festival and Timecode: NOLA in New Orleans.
My work is part of a Trilogy called "Obsession" ,which closing act, "Desiderata" is inspired by a text from Max Erhmann (WIP project).

I am currently writing my first feature film, "Six Fifty Four", a drama sets nowadays in downtown Sydney.

My films aim to explore metaphysical themes, human morality and beauty that can be find in everyday life.

Please feel free to contact me if you wish to review my work (available via private links on Vimeo).
