A week ago today, Amanda Gorman became a household name after her international introduction at the Biden-Harris inauguration. The 22-year-old Harvard grad read her poem "The Hill We Climb,” which was one of the most talked about moments of the day and instantly went viral. However, Amanda isn’t the only talent in the family. There’s also her equally fabulous twin sister, Gabrielle Gorman. She is a 2020 graduate of UCLA's School of Film and Television. The 22-year-old is a gifted filmmaker and has the resume to prove it.
In 2019, Gabrielle directed a short doc called Mr. Ewing, about a 99-year-old Black teacher and WWII veteran, which can be viewed on Amazon Prime. Back in 2015, she created and directed Dear America, which was featured in a PBS special called Immense Possibilities.
According to Radio.com, Gabrielle is a former intern at Complex and also did a stint as interim Executive Director at Ava Duvernay's foundation, Array Alliance in Feb. 2018. That same year she attended Sundance Film Festival as a YoungArts x Sundance Ignite fellow.
Sounds like we will be hearing from both of the Gorman sisters in the years to come.
