Gabe and I met through a mutual friend (thanks Federico!) when Gabe was looking for an actor for an upcoming reading of one of his films. I had the opportunity to participate and was drawn to the quality and quantity of Gabe's work. In this episode of Actorcast, we discuss Gabe's process as a writer and director for film, as well as his most recent project, "The Sisters Kardos."
Gabe Rodriguez is an award-winning filmmaker, playwright, critic, and lyricist. His films include Fighting Nirvana, Susie In the Afterlife, Q To the 6 Train, Havana In Bushwick, and Goddess of Time, all available on Amazon video. Susie In the Afterlife won the Spirit Award at The Queens World Film Festival in 2011. Q To the 6 Train was selected by the Anthology Film Archives as part of a retrospective for the anniversary of 9/11, and has since played in part of The Subway Film Series. Havana In Bushwick premiered at The International Puerto Rican Heritage Film Festival. His current project, The Sisters Kardos, is currently in post-production. It is a feature narrative film set during 2020 and confronting the era of Covid.
