Kasi Lemmons (born Karen Lemmons; February 24, 1961) is an American film director and actress, most notable for her work on the films Eve's Bayou, The Caveman's Valentine and Talk to Me. She was described by film scholar Wheeler Winston Dixon as "an ongoing testament to the creative possibilities of film".
Lemmons has been married to actor and director Vondie Curtis-Hall since 1995. The couple have two children.
Lemmons states that her husband is immensely supportive and feels that he is more relaxed than she is. Compared to how he works, she prefers the pressure of working on a set with the actors. As a director and a mother, Lemmons says that it gives her perspective. Her life outside of the movie set and Hollywood has kept her grounded. Though she is a Black woman, Lemmons identifies herself as an artist first and foremost in her career.“…I don't wake up every day saying I'm a Black woman because it's too given, but I wake up every day feeling like an artist and I feel I'm an artist."
