I'm a filmmaker, director, writer based in Berlin. Check out my latest projects: www.nataliemacmahonfilms.com
Natalie MacMahon gained her first film experiences as an actress at a young age. After her studies at a Film Acting School in Berlin, she started writing her first script for the short film “The Man Who Couldn’t Cry”, which has been screened at numerous international film festivals, followed by her film noir style short films "Like A Summer Sonata" and "Lola wants to see the sea, which were equally successful. In 2017, Natalie released "It's getting darker every day", a dark sci-fi drama set in the future, as well as her melancholic Esperanto short "A Universal Love Story". The young director just finished her sci-fi genre mix "The Redhead" and shot her new film "The Funeral Dancer", while working on her first feature film script.
