Born and raised in LA, Lambert spent the early part of his career between NYC and London before settling in Berlin where he’s been living and working for over a decade. His work spans film, television, fashion, documentary, music video and erotica – working primarily in film, but also photography and performance.

He will be present in person and giving an Q&A after the film screening.
