Interview with Filmmaker Dana Mor Katz (A BROKEN WING)

A BROKEN WING played to rave reviews at the November 2020 Drama Film Festival.

1. What motivated you to make this film?

The desire to tell a story and touch people’s hearts.

I’m a master’s-degree graduate student in film. It had been my freshman year and this film is the first one I produced.

2. From the idea to the finished product, how long did it take for you to make this short?

The entire process took me about 3 months.

3. How would you describe your short film in two words!?

A Broken Wing (or in one word – a discord)

4. What was the biggest obstacle you faced in completing this film?

The work on the sound editing of the film was something that I didn’t have enough experience in.

5. What were your initial reactions when watching the audience talking about your film in the feedback video?

My heart was beating a bit faster and I couldn’t stop smiling 🙂

6. How did you come up with the idea for this short film?

I wanted to write a story for a film that I’d like to watch, a film that would touch my heart, and I naturally started writing about the dynamics of a mother and daughter relationship…

7. What film have you seen the most in your life?

Back to the Future

8. You submitted to the festival via FilmFreeway, what are you feelings of the submission platform from a filmmaker’s perspective?

In my mind It’s perfect and makes my life easier, especially when dealing with two small children, intense studies and a full-time job.

9. What song have you listened to the most times in your life?

Possibly “Lost on you” – LP

10. What is next for you? A new film?


I’m working on a film that will narrate the story of a woman and a mother at the height of her career who receives the news that she’s seriously ill and the whole film will be engaged with her having to process it.
