In the course of working with Margarethe, I discovered that Germans artists feel they have to be very careful about how they present Jews. Even a radical, left-wing, politically-perfect woman like Margarethe von Trotta is going to feel nervous about how she presents a Jewish family. [...] But then I came on board, and I said: “I feel very Jewish and I come from a family that identifies itself as Jewish. But we don’t keep kosher, etc, etc.” That was hard for Margarethe to hear, and it took quite a bit of nerve on her part. A big part of our tension, the creative back and forth between us, came about because I kept saying: “You can do it any way you want to.”


In 2015, Random House publishing released Katz's book The Partnership: Brecht, Weill, Three Women, and Germany on the Brink, a non-fiction account of the theatrical artists Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill's collaboration and subsequent alienation. It covers the years of their friendship while exploring the relationships they had with actresses Lotte Lenya and Helene Weigel as well as the writer Elisabeth Hauptmann.


Hannah Arendt (2012), was co-written with director Margarethe von Trotta and was a biographical film depicting a portion of the life of Jewish intellectual Hannah Arendt. The film specifically deals with Arendt's coverage of the trial of Nazi Lieutenant Colonel Adolf Eichmann and the subsequent controversy in academic circles.


Remembrance (2011) is a love story Katz wrote for director Anna Justice which begins with a Polish prisoner (Tomasz) rescuing his Jewish girlfriend (Hannah) from Auschwitz in 1944. After losing each other and becoming convinced that the other is dead, thirty years pass before Hannah sights Tomasz during an interview and the two reconnect. Though the idea was criticized as being unrealistic, Katz said in an interview with Susana Styron that "there [were] actually 600 attempted escapes from Auschwitz, about a third of which were actually successful."


When asked about her longtime collaboration with von Trotta, Katz said in a 2004 interview with Jan Lisa Huttner that:


Her breakthrough film Rosenstrasse was co-written with director Margarethe von Trotta and came out in 2003. The film centered around the Rosenstrasse protest which occurred in Berlin in 1943. It was concerned with the concept of the good German during the Nazi era, and though von Trotta insisted it was not intended to "rehabilitate the German," it was criticized by James Adams at the Globe & Mail for being "insufficiently emotionally complex."


On February 7, 1988, Katz married German cinematographer Florian Ballhaus.
