Obed Lamy, has a penchant for bringing viewers into the emotional landscape of a person or place he profiles with his cinematography work. He has a knack for capturing small moments and intimate vertié as a vehicle into humanity, identity, and dignity. Obed nurtured a passion for storytelling from his mother, who devoted most evenings to telling him stories of her childhood under a dictatorship in Haiti. This is ultimately what led to his journalism where he covered presidential elections, civil unrest, and natural disasters in his home country. As a filmmaker, Obed has been the recipient of many awards including Best Emerging Filmmaker, Fayetteville Film Festival; Best Student Film, Made in Arkansa Film Festival; Special Jury Mention, Prix du Jeune Journaliste Haïtien.
