    Gabriel Amaral

    After graduating from New York Film Academy (2004), British-Brazilian filmmaker Gabriel Amaral honed his craft producing, directing and editing commercials and corporate films through his London based production company, 3c Films. Prior to re-locating to São Paulo, Brazil (2011), he attended the Stella Adler Acting Conservatory in New York and has since taken on multiple roles working in the Brazilian film industry. His debut feature as screenwriter is being produced by Morena Filmes and is slated for a cinema release at the end of 2020, he is also currently in pre-production on his debut feature as executive producer. In 2017, during an opportune trip to Bahia, in North-East Brazil, Gabriel met and befriended the farmworker who would inspire his first Portuguese language film, “Lugar Algum”. The film deals with the hierarchical and co-dependent relationship between employer and employee, more specifically within the context of a developing country where the power one holds over the other is often unconscionable.
