Gabriel’s debut feature documentary ONEFOUR: Against All Odds launched worldwide on Netflix in October 2023. The film is a co-production between Entropico & Stranger Than Fiction, produced by Erin Moy, Sarah Noonan and Jennifer Peedom.


Critic Margaret Pomeranz described it as an incendiary and powerful film that provokes both outrage and compassion. A cautionary tale for those of us opposed to censorship and discriminatory police powers.
