Young British-American director, whose award-winning work explores the power of femininity as a gateway to the dark realms of the unconscious.
Signed at age twenty-three to one of the world's most renowned 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 richly aesthetic worlds with intensely skilful performances and a distinctively dark poetic voice.
He is currently developing his next fiction film: a post-apocalyptic tale of madness, addiction and witchcraft starring three real-life sisters.

"I've been to Hell. You've only read about it."
"You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star."
"The modern individual who dares to heed the call and seek the mansion of that presence with whom it is our whole destiny to be atoned, cannot, indeed must not, wait for his community to cast off its slough of pride, fear, rationalized avarice, and sanctified misunderstanding. 'Live,' Nietzsche says, 'as though the day were here.' It is not society that is to guide and save the hero, but precisely the reverse. And so every one of us shares the supreme ordeal––carries the cross of the redeemer––not in the bright moments of his tribe's great victories, but in the silences of his personal despair."
