"Kati With An I"
A film by Robert Greene / An Icarus Films Release
"CRITIC'S PICK! Effortlessly captures the shape of a life poised between two stages and the trembling need to cling to the past while reaching for the future. With a poignancy that's remarkable for its complete lack of contrivance [it] achieves an un-self-conscious transcendence that can't be scripted." —Jeanette Catsoulis, The New York Times
At once universal and personal, this intimate documentary portrait of an Alabama teenage girl on the verge of her high school graduation captures three tumultuous days during which her future is cast into doubt.
Eighteen-year-old Kati Genthner is followed, moment-by-moment, from her last day of school, as she takes leave of her friends, and prepares to move away with her parents. The center of Kati's life is her love affair with her boyfriend, 21-year-old James, whom she must convince him to come with her and leave everything he knows.
Beautifully photographed by Sean Price Williams, KATI WITH AN I brings the singular experience of one American teen to life. Literally a lifetime in the making—the director Robert Greene, Kati's step-brother, has been documenting her since childhood—KATI WITH AN I is the moving story about one girl growing up.
