Katsitsionni has been making films since 2003 in the Mohawk Territory of Akwesasne, where she resides.  Her credits include: Sacredly Stoked, a short drama related to the traditional uses of tobacco. This film was distributed across Ontario and partially funded by Cancer Care Ontario. She has also produced several short films that relate to domestic violence awareness and environmental awareness.  Katsitsionni has a personal connection to this film “Ohero:kon - Under the Husk”.  This Passage Rites Ceremony for the youth was revived in her community and she knew it was going to change their community forever.  She felt compelled to document and share this story through the eyes of two Mohawk girls that courageously make this transition to become women. 

Born in Montreal, Victoria Catherine Chan graduated in directing at ZeLIG School for Documentary in Italy and is completing the CoLAB Fellowship 2016-2017 at UnionDocs Center for Documentary Arts in New York. Currently based in Brooklyn, she works as a director and editor in creative documentaries and teaches filmmaking in various youth programs. She has recently edited Ohero:kon-Under the Husk, a personal film directed by Katsitsionni Fox and Face of the Deep, a poetic music integrated video by Theodore Wiprud. Her latest film Il Destino di una Fabbrica (2013) was selected at Visions du réel in Nyon and broadcast in Italy. Victoria received a screenwriting fund from SODEC, Quebec's major film funder, and is working on her first feature film, a dreamlike tale about her journey to reconnect with her Chinese ancestral roots in Canada.
