In development

This is Kathrine


13 year old Katharine starts to think that she might be gay. In order to explore her sexual identity she turns to movies and tv, and from the onscreen representations she creates an images of how she should be. An images that is far from the shy and scared girl she really is.


This Is Katharine is a personal story, and it’s based on the directors own experience. I’s a coming-out-story that continues after accepting oneself as a lesbian, and also tells the tale of the woman and the human behind the lesbian.
