Kate Davis Interview

The Life and Inspirations of a Documentary Filmmaker
featuring Kate Davis

Kate DavisHas your life ever been changed by watching a movie?

I’m eager and excited to introduce you to my wonderful friend, the award-winning documentary filmmaker Kate Davis.

Of her many films, Kate created one of the most powerful documentaries I’ve ever seen: Southern Comfort, a Sundance Grand Jury Prize-winning movie about the life of a man who was transgender.

That movie is regarded today as a breakthrough film to bring understanding to what it means to be transgender.

In this interview, you’ll discover:

  • How Kate got her start in making movies
  • What inspires her to select her subjects
  • The quality she possesses that allows her to be a “fly on
    the wall” when filming
  • What her next exciting documentaries are about

Thank you to Women on Fire member Bobbie Celeste of Columbus, Ohio, for her wisdom in the After Interview.
