Conversation with Rami Katz

Season One Episode Four

Today’s episode is a conversation with documentary filmmaker Rami Katz. I’ve known Rami for a few years and it was a pleasure getting to know him a bit better. We touched on his creative process, how the pandemic has affected our work, cooking, movies, podcasts. We covered some ground and throughout it all I couldn’t help but notice his mind for justice and heart for mercy. He’s kind, smart, and curious. A magical mix.

Rami’s Bio in his own words:

Rami Katz is a documentary filmmaker whose work has screened internationally. His recent work includes directing short documentaries for CBC Arts, and directing the documentary The Issue of Mr. O’Dell, which screened at twenty film festivals throughout North America and is available to view online at Roar Magazine. In his spare time, Rami loves to cook, garden, and swim.
