Filmmaker’s statement

Katherine Fitzgerald says:

“Although I have directed four other short films, Bread & Kisses is the first film I have written and directed. I found the process rewarding and challenging, and enjoyed the opportunity to develop my voice as a filmmaker.

Bread & Kisses juxtaposes two areas of interest for me: science and domesticity. The film is ultimately about balancing the head and the heart, the cerebral and the sensual, in order to live a fulfilling life.”
