Following in the footsteps of his directorial debut “Amour Infinity“, which won numerous film festivals including the Atlanta Independent and the Hollywood Black Film Festival, in 2006 Lamothe wrote/directed and produced the independent film, “Blackout.” The film boasted an impressive ensemble which included Jeffrey Wright, Zoe Saldana, Saul Rubinek, Jamie Hector, Latanya Richardson-Jackson and film maverick, Melvin Van Peebles.
Lamothe‘s new short film, “The Tombs” is currently screening in the most prestigious Film Festivals in the states as well as abroad.
This short film follows a Brooklyn man‘s three day journey through New York‘s central booking jail system, infamously known as “The Tombs” and his encounters with interesting personalities while locked up. The primary functions of Central Booking are the processing, admission, and cellblock lodging of persons under arrest where prisoner intake is conducted and photographs & fingerprints are taken. This film poignantly highlights the injustice of the jail system and its affect on Black males.
