Kathleen Winter is an activist filmmaker who is interested in telling authentic stories that uplift communities and on topics that aren’t always told. Winter directed He Kākano Ahau – From the Spaces in Between which follows Kassie Hartendorp who is also featured in Standing on the Shoulders.
Winter’s filmmaking practice is collaborative: in making He Kākano Ahau, rather than getting release forms signed, shooting footage and disappearing into an edit suite, she and producer Jaimee Poipoi took part in two months of kapa haka practise and had an ongoing dialogue with participants while the film was being edited.
More recently Winter has created the Minimum series – ten powerful short documentaries that share stories from women of all ages, ethnicities and sexualities working in minimum wage jobs in Aotearoa.
Listen to Kathleen Winter talk about the Minimum series in this interview with RNZ’s Jesse Mulligan.
