Born in Canada to a Uruguayan mother and a Croatian-Argentinian father, Katherine Jerkovic grew up in Belgium and Uruguay. At 18 years old, she settled in Montréal and pursued film studies at Concordia University (B.F.A. and Master’s). She has since directed and produced many short fiction and experimental films, one video installation and, recently, a feature-length fiction. She also worked as producer and production manager on many of her colleagues’ films. It is better to avoid asking her where she comes from; the answer would be very long and a little confusing. Cinema is her homeland.
