MEET THE FILMMAKERS
Cathy is a Canadian filmmaker, born in a small coal-mining town in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Ten years ago, while living in Bangladesh and working as a senior adviser with United Nations Development Programme in Bangladesh, she met many women who were quietly revolutionizing their own lives through art and craft, looking to their own culture and resources to do so. Their resilience reminds her of the struggles in the stories of her ancestors, their inspiration a glow that needs to be shared. Cathy worked across Canada and internationally as a public affairs and international development consultant and is now based in Washington State, USA. Threads is her debut as a documentary director.
