Kari's previous film, an adaptation of the best selling book The Stone Angel, starring Ellen Burstyn, Ellen Page, Kevin Zegers, Dylan Baker and Cole Hauser, premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in 2007 and is due for release in 2008. Kari was named by Hollywood Reporter as one of its "Ten Directors to Watch" for her debut as writer-director of Liberty Stands Still. Kari's career began in Canada by directing award winning commercials and music videos. She then moved into television where she started with the enormously successful and multi-award winning series Traders (nominated for 9 Geminis including Best Director and won Best Series). White Lies, a movie for CBC, was nominated for several Geminis and an International Emmy and won a Tout Ecran. Her films The Size of Watermelons starring Donal Logue and Paul Rudd, Men With Guns starring Donal Logue and Callum Keith Rennie, Liberty Stands Still (written by Kari as well) starring Wesley Snipes and Linda Fiorentino, have all screened and won awards at major festivals in Canada (Toronto FF, Montreal FF), the US (Slamdance, Chicago, Houston, USA, New York, Cinequest, Seattle) and around the world. Most recently Kari was nominated for both a DGC award and a Gemini for her work on The 11th Hour for CTV and for her film Chicks With Sticks and won the DGC Best Director for her work on the mini-series Terminal City.
