Director Biography - Susana Darwin

A Southerner by birth and a Chicagoan by temperament, Susana Darwin took a detour into politics, the law, and book publishing before returning to her early passion for film. Her award-winning narrative short “Hatboxes” appeared in 15 film festivals and conferences worldwide.

Susana now lives with her wife in St. Petersburg, Florida, an exceptionally film-supportive city where she created “Longer.”

Susana is currently working on several short and feature-length screenplays, in addition to other forms of visual art. Her other passions include aloha shirts, fat novels, political organizing, and outdoor music festivals.
