MEET GAYLE, DAUGHTER & ACCOMPLICE

Called the Nora Ephron of documentaries, Gayle Kirschenbaum is an Emmy award-winning filmmaker/TV producer/writer/speaker/photographer, and forgiveness coach. She is the creator of several reality shows. Her critically acclaimed film LOOK AT US NOW, MOTHER! is about the transformation of a highly charged mother/daughter relationship from hatred to love. It’s Gayle’s story. It has screened globally, premiered on Netflix, and is credited with transforming lives. This is the “larger version” of her humorous short film, MY NOSE, in which we follow her mother’s relentless campaign to get her to have a nose. Both festival award-winning favorites played worldwide to rave reviews from The Washington Post, “Dazzling self-confidence,” to The New York Times, “Heartwarming story of forgiveness and acceptance.” Kirschenbaum’s TEDx talk, NO MORE DRAMA WITH MAMA, is focused on forgiveness.

Another notable film, A DOG'S LIFE: A DOGAMENTARY, premiered on HBO, telling a heartwarming story about the bond between dogs and humans through Gayle's own experiences with her Shih Tzu.

Gayle's writings have been published in many outlets, including The Huffington Post, Parade, Shondaland, Next Avenue, The Ethel (AARP), and The Los Angeles Times.
 

Gayle's photographs have been exhibited in both solo and group shows in the US and Europe, have appeared in several journals, and are in many private collections. Gayle has been featured widely in the media, including The New York Times, NBC’s Today Show, and Psychology Today.


Gayle is actively involved in various industry organizations, including the Producers Guild of America (PGA), and serves as a judge for the Emmys and PGA.
