Director Biography – Kate Johnston

Kate Johnston is an award-winning Indie filmmaker and founder of TomGirl Films. She is best known for Stormcloud, Margarita, Click and Slow Burn, and her feature film TRU LOVE which was the recipient of 15 international film festival awards including the audience award for Best Feature Film at Inside Out 2014. Both Tru Love and her award-winning short film STORMCLOUD are distributed worldwide.

Director Statement
Jo Vannicola’s powerful story Trashed speaks to those who live, and sometimes die, outside the margins of society; queer, homeless, those who have been forgotten. These queer stories are real and common, and need to be told with a clear eye in the hopes that perhaps we see ourselves in the suffering of others.
