The Film Makers

Karin McCraken


Karin McCracken is an award-winning writer, actor and theatre-maker focussed on telling stories that empower women and interrogate gendered violence, sex, and desire. Karin completed a double degree in Theatre and Law at Victoria University, and has since focussed on creating visually gripping, immersive, performer driven theatre-work.

This will be Karin's first time directing for film. Karin feels confident in this role, given her experience on film sets, her background in direction and creation for theatre, and the strong team around her.
