    Katja Benrath

    Influenced by theatre throughout her youth, Katja Benrath pursued that career in her early professional life. She became a tailor at „Wuppertaler Bühnen“ (Pina Bausch). Following, she completed her studies in Singing and Acting in Vienna, Austria. At the same time she discovered that acting in films meant as much to her as in theatre - and even more making films herself. Her first short films (BABY DOLL and NO ONE PUKES IN HEAVEN) have been playing successfully and have won prizes at festivals all over the world. During her master studies at Hamburg Media School she directed WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN and SECRECIES. TILDA came to life during the same time.
