Kate S. Logan recently wrapped her debut documentary, Kidnapped For Christ, which won the Audience Award for Best Feature Documentary at the 2014 Slamdance Film Festival and will air on Showtime in July 2014. Logan, who has a propensity for filming in gritty locations, is now gearing up to shoot her next feature documentary following Haitian distance runners as they train for Haitiʼs first full-length marathon.
