Lindiwe Bio Picture

LINDIWE SUTTLE MUELLER-WESTERNHAGEN

is a songwriter turned screenwriter. As the daughter of an American author and South African mother who created South Africa’s first TV talk show, it was this backdrop where Lindiwe learned the power of words, media, and the arts, to share stories that impact our world. Her first film job where she went from costume P.A. to Beyoncé’s personal costumer is where she fell in love with the magic of movie making. Lindiwe’s characters are ones that fight to break stigmas, rebels that show their human spirit rise up time and time again, and outcasts that stand up against social norms of society.

Her first short film, Desmond’s Not Here Anymore, won the 2019 HollyShorts Screenplay contest and she was voted as one of the Top 25 Screenwriters to Watch in 2020 by the International Screenwriters’ Association. She is a Stowe Story Labs alumni and currently enrolled at Harvard University in the graduate writing program.
