Katrina is an Indonesian-Australian who once longed to be a writer so she quit her job as a kindergarten teacher and wrote and directed a short film. It was nominated for Best New Female Filmmaker in Queensland so she wrote another one. It won the Cancer Council Daffodil Day Award and was picked up by Women in Film and TV as one of the top women’s films in Australia. Katrina has been writing ever since. Her cultural blend seeps into her stories with uncontrolled regularity.
She writes and directs in a variety of genres and formats including short films, experimental, web series and feature films. Her true love is feminist horror. She is known for her collaborative directing style which embraces instinct and strives to find beauty in all subjects.
Siti Rubiyah is her first play.
