Kathleen Mantel

Kathleen Mantel began directing television documentaries in the late 90s. Since then she has won awards in the United States for Kiwi-made docos on problem gambling (It's Not a Game), teenage pregnancy (KIDS) and the Exclusive Brethren (Leaving the Exclusive Brethren). In 2012 her doco The Green Chain won the NZ Television Award for Best Popular Documentary.

It's an honour to go into a person's house for an interview as a stranger, and leave with an intimate knowledge of someone, of something, or of an idea you didn't have before.
