After graduating from high-school, Judith Kempkes (*1960) completed an apprenticeship which qualified her as a bank clerk. She worked for more than twenty years in various areas before she decided to venture into the film industry. Since January 2014 she has been working for augenschein Filmproduktion in financial accounting. Since she saw her first film, PAPERMOON, in a cinema at the age of thirteen, movies have been a passion of hers, alongside the world of numbers.
Amongst her many favourite films are HAROLD AND MAUDE, THE HOURS and GREEN TOMATOES.
