This groundbreaking film opened March 16th, 2001 in Los Angeles and then opens Nationwide on a regional basis over the course of several months in 2001.

"Gabriela" is a love story set against the backdrop of a mental health clinic.  The film features star making performances by Jaime Gomez ("Crimson Tide," "Nash Bridges") and Seidy Lopez ("Mi Vida Loca" and is distinguished by several other outstanding performances by ), Lupe Ontiveros ("As Good as it Gets"), Frank Medrano ("Shawshank Redemption") and Evelina Fernandez ("American Me"), Lemont Bently (Moesha), Troy Winbush (The Replacements), among others.  The film was written, produced, and directed by Vincent Miller

"Gabriela" is a great love story with intense emotion and a healthy dose of humor. Jaime Gomez and Seidy Lopez create heat on the screen while they deal with real human emotions. Gomez plays a tough but sensitive leading man. Seidy plays a softer, more sensitive role than usual and is breathtaking as Gabriela. Lupe Ontoveros was a joy to watch as Gabriela's frantic grandmother. Troy Winbush is very funny as the womanizing best friend. Lemont Bently shines as a mental patient.

Gabriela has screened to packed theaters at a number of college campuses, including most recently at Cal State Northridge, at a fundraiser for earthquake victims in El Salvador.
