Sarah McCarthy – Director


Sarah has brought stories from Russian orphanages, Filipino prisons, Indian slums and the American bible belt to millions of people in over thirty-five countries. She has written, produced and directed five documentary films, two of which – The Dark Matter of Love and The Sound of Mumbai – premiered at Toronto International Film Festival to critical acclaim and strong international sales including to HBO, Netflix, Channel 4, WDR, CBC, VPRO and the BBC.

Before moving into directing, she worked in development for the BBC and RDF Media where she directed and produced pilots for documentary series.

Recently, she has received development finance from Screen Australia to turn The Sound of Mumbai into a scripted feature, which she will write and direct. It will be produced by Academy Award winner James Brown (Still Alice) and BAFTA winner Nicky Bentham (Moon).
