Gayle Ferraro, Director and Producer


Gayle Ferraro, founder of Aerial Productions, brings personal accounts of extraordinary and socially compelling stories to the film circuit.

TO CATCH A DOLLAR: MUHAAMMAD YUNUS BANKS ON AMERICA is Gayle's fourth independently produced and directed feature documentary, and a recipient of the prestigious Sundance Documentary Program / Skoll Foundation Stories of Change grant. Ferraro's previous works include GANGES: RIVER TO HEAVEN, where with unparalleled intimacy, the film explores dying in the holy city of Varanasi, India; ANONYMOUSLY YOURS, shot clandestinely in Burma follows the harrowing world of sex trafficking through the stories of four young women; and SIXTEEN DECISIONS, an intimate look at one young woman's challenges in rural Bangladesh to change her family's life of extreme poverty.

Ms. Ferraro received Masters Degrees in Public Administration from Harvard University and Mass Communication from Boston University, and studied International Human Rights Law at Oxford University. She can often be found addressing audiences throughout the world about the compelling subjects related to the films she has produced. Ms. Ferraro is the proud owner of the Gymnastic Academy of Boston/Cambridge.
