gabriel gettman is a young british-american director, whose richly aesthetic work
explores the power of femininity as a gateway to the dark realms of the unconscious.

working with one of the world's most awarded production companies, he began his career
shooting fashion commercials in paris. this commercial work was featured by Vogue, Purple, Elle,
W, Hunger, Wonderland, 1883, Volt and Sunday Times Style, at London Fashion Week, ASVOFF,
Cannes, TIFF, Bokeh and the La Jolla Fashion Film Festival, and in live performances by CocoRosie.

now, after three years classical directing training at the Drama Centre at Central Saint Martins,
for which he received first class honours, gabriel has moved into narrative cinema, enlivening his visual
worlds with psychologically rich performances and a distinctively dark poetic voice. his debut
short film Caecilia is due to screen at festivals worldwide during 2017.

he is currently developing his next fiction film - a post-apocalyptic tale of madness, addiction
and witchcraft starring three real-life sisters.
