A-LAN HOLT, WRITER & DIRECTOR

I wrote INAMORATA to feel powerful. It was an attempt to remedy a dark moment in my life when I felt alone, with child, my partner gone. I wrote to ease my deepening sorrow. I continued writing and found that I was doing more intimate work—I was healing myself. INAMORATA is a story about healing yourself. It is told through the unfolding of three lovers. What happens when you find yourself in the most unlikely of places, in the bedrooom of the “other woman”?

Inamorata is a remarkable must see short film. Seductive without being overtly erotic, all elements meld beautifully. The cast trio of Sabina Karlsson, Joel L. Daniels, and Natasha Mmonatau have a refreshing chemistry together— raw, subdued, authentic...The visuals are immensely beautiful shot artworks, cinematography astounding and breathtaking. Magic dances around rendered script, each scene sparkling with triumph and bravery.

NOTES ON PROCESS

Pre production included extensive location scouting across New York City shot on 35mm film. As one unique aspect of our pre-production process, Creative Director Dalila Noel Shannon crafted  individual journals for our principal characters. The beauty of the process brings us closer to the minds and into the hearts of Tabatha & Lola, our entangled protagonists.
