She studied Experimental film-making at the Udk (Berlin) and at the Central St. Martins (College of Art and Design, London). She is a freelance filmmaker and has primarily directed feature-length documentaries since 2003. Katrin Rothe Filmproduction arose from the company Karotoons, a creative start-up from 2001 that was the first to create internet animations in Germany. Within the production of unconventional animated content, styles, and formats, a special know-how has formed for producing mixtures of fiction and documentaries with a certain amount of animation. 1917 – The Real October was screened in Anneçy IAFF (France), Manchester IF (UK), FANTOSCHE IAFF (Swiss), Bucheon IAFF (Korea), CinAnima (Portugal) or FICXIXÓN (Spain), among others.
