If your keywords are imported in the catalog, they will become "categories" , and you will be able to select Anna , Ctrl John, Alt Mary in categories filter.
(new name : Catalog filter)

Use Ctrl key to add, Alt key to exclude

See also the drop down menu "Match" at the top of Catalog filter pane.


To import :
- Check : Settings>Metadata>"Import xmp or iptc keywords..."
- Use "Import folder" button (Settings > Catalog)

Too bad,that you can't just use "Quick Filter" (previously known as "Quick Search"), to do it.
