Filmmaker - Speaker - Writer - Educator
A multi-faceted filmmaker and entrepreneur in the arts, Gabriela Böhm uses the power of storytelling to raise awareness and illuminate social issues to impact our perceptions of the world. Her award-winning films have screened world-wide.
Gabriela's family was forever changed by the events of The Holocaust, leaving a trail of ghosts in its residue. Her creative work is alive, pulsating, and fed by questions that reflect back to this dark source. Born to émigré refugee parents, Gabriela identifies with the “nomad Jew.” In contemporary terms, she sees herself as “a citizen of the world.”
A native of Argentina, Gabriela studied art and photography in Israel prior to receiving a BFA at NYU Tisch School of the Arts and a MFA at Maine Media College. Whether in the field of ideas, traveling the globe, or working on a project, she is at home with people of all cultures and languages. She is a US citizen and speaks Spanish, English, and Hebrew.
Gabriela is the founder of Böhm Productions, which produces creative, thought-provoking, character-driven films that explore our common humanity through inspiring stories - past and present.
