Director Biography - Samu Gabor

Samu Gabor started making films at the early age of 9 to use the medium to convey important messages that reflect on today's society and start discussions among viewers. He completed a diploma course at the age of 12, having made his first short-film then. He moved, in 2016, to Berlin along with his family. In 2018 the first bigger budget short-film was shot called Girl with a Pendant. Later that summer, he directed a mini-docu series around migrants living in Berlin and their integration into society. In 2019 he wrote and directed an Amazon Prime short, funded by Allianz, called True Colors of Society, that touched on racial issues. In 2019, he was accepted to Sarah Lawrence College, before even completing high school, while he was still attending grade 11. He is currently a sophomore at the college.
