Marlin Darrah

Marlin Darrah is perhaps the world’s most traveled filmmaker. Marlin’s 45 years of award-winning production experience have taken him to more than 140 COUNTRIES worldwide, yielding more than 100 documentary and travel-adventure programs, as well as three dramatic feature films. He’s directed and shot programs for dozens of int’l travel-adventure companies, corporations, and government tourism bureaus. As presented by his fellow travel producers, Marlin received the Travel Adventure Cinema magazine’s Bertrand Holmes Award for best travel films showcase. National Geographic represents his int’l stock shots. In September of 2014, Marlin was honored with a Knighthood in the Royal House of Portugal, for his work in Portugal and for his many international cultural and documentary film and video productions. Marlin’s international shots have been aired on programs appearing on all the major television networks, including PBS, History Channel and Discovery Channel. Recently a two-hour documentary Marlin shot and directed in Egypt was screened at the Cairo Opera House to an audience of 3000 guests. His geo-travel lectures and features have been presented to audiences in more than 100 theaters and auditoriums across America, including venues such as the Harvard Club and the Philadelphia Geographical Society. Darrah also wrote, directed and produced three acclaimed 90-minute dramatic feature films. His movie, MONSOON WIFE, was the first American movie shot entirely in Cambodia, since “Lord Jim.” Universal Studios acquired that movie and television rights have been sold to more than 10 countries. In 2021, Darrah produced and directed a suspense-thriller movie, AMAZON QUEEN, in the heart of the Brazilian Amazon rainforest. And in 2022, Darrah produced and directed EGYPTIAN AFFAIR, modern film noir unfolding on a riverboat on the Nile. Darrah’s productions have won 140 top awards and nominations at more than 100 national and international film festivals from Berlin to Barcelona, and from Rome to New York and LA. A producer at National Geographic recently said this about Marlin. “If I could trade eye-balls with anyone in the world, it would be Marlin. He has seen more of our world than anyone I have ever met, and that includes hard-core travelers at National Geographic, who are a dime a dozen. He lives the life I can only dream of.”
