Short Film (Full Length) – 2008

"This is me. This is my husband …" So narrates Evie as she watches her younger self labour with childbirth. "And this is the bitch who will one day steal him, and ruin my life." When the bitch is shown as an angelic six-year-old the tone is set for Katie Wolfe’s award-winning black comedy (her debut short as a director). Writer Kate McDermott’s wry narration moves between then and now, as fate delivers a less than wonderful life in Auckland suburbia. Selected for the Sundance Film Festival, This is Her was a breakout festival success, earning Wolfe notice as a filmmaker to watch.

When I first read the script I laughed – a lot. I was attracted to its dry, wry tone, its clever structure, and the potential to create eclectic, surprising and imaginative visuals. I thought the structure was very sophisticated and the tone, the dark humour of it, really appealed to me. It was a very adult story, the story of a woman my age.
– Director Katie Wolfe
