“Floating like a dance, full of fleeting gestures, Narjes’ remarkably mature approach to mise-en-scène leaves gaps that act as open spaces for the mind. They lend the narrative a fairy-tale-like feel and make the formal execution here appear artlessly artful. An off-the-cuff sketch that reveals itself to be a great work of art.” (epd Film, Alexandra Seitz)
Katinka Narjes was born in 1982 in Frankfurt am Main and grew up near Hamburg. She studied film at the University of Hamburg. After a longer sojourn in New York, where she realised her first short films, Narjes worked as a directorial and productions assistant (in Babelsberg for Lana and Lilly Wachowski and for Tom Tykwer, among others). Most recently, she served as an assistant and caster for Valeska Grisebach’s WESTERN. Since 2009, she has studied directing at Deutsche Film- und Fernsehakademie Berlin (DFFB). Her short films have been shown at diverse festivals in Germany and abroad and appeared numerous times on television.
