Pamela Katz

Pam entered the film world on the technical side, working as a Camera Assistant for prominent directors such as Spike Lee (JUNGLE FEVER and MO’ BETTER BLUES), Alan Parker (ANGEL HEART), and Martin Scorsese (THE LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST). ROSENSTRASSE was her first collaboration with world-renowned director Margarethe von Trotta. Their second collaboration DIE ANDERE FRAU (THE OTHER WOMAN) tells the story of an East German Stasi agent who pretends to marry a West German secretary in order to smuggle secrets from West to East. Like ROSENSTRASSE, it is based on several true stories. Made for German television, DIE ANDERE FRAU is played in the U.S. at selected film festivals and museum retrospectives.  Pam has also published a historical novel in German called DIE SEERAUEBERIN. She is currently working on an English translation of the novel as well as a related screenplay which will focus on Lenya’s Weimar years.
