A Note from Maurice Jamal...


My friends,

I know the rumors have started circulating and I wanted to reach out to all of you personally to share the great news! Dirty Laundry is indeed coming out this December. Nationally we'll be out December 28 but the great news is that Codeblack Entertainment and FOX are so excited by the film that it's being released EARLY in select cities on December 7, 2007! Atlanta, Washington, DC, Baltimore and New York!

As you all know, this film was a huge labor of love. As an artist, I have always wanted to tell stories that reflect a human experience. Dirty Laundry is such a film. Funny, touching and raw....the film strikes a cord because of it's honest portrayal of a family in transition. I know some of you saw the film in sneak previews and others who haven't have been begging me to show them the film early! LOL. But each and every one of you have wanted to know how you can support. And we need you now! Our opening weekend on December 7 is VERY important. We need to sell out every showing on every screen. And I don't mean, we want to...we NEED to. Dirty Laundry is rare because it's a true independent film that tells a story which breaks new ground. And all eyes our on our community. Collectively we need to show that Dirty Laundry is important because it reflects our lives. If this film does well, it blows open the door for other artists and filmmakers to tell diverse stories about our people.
I have a love affair with film, so it's important to me that this crazy, wonderful, insane industry find the space for us to exist. And if they don't, we'll just make the space (smile). Dirty Laundry is about hope and redemption and I'm inviting you all to help tell this story.
PLEASE FORWARD THIS EMAIL to everyone you know. In particular, people who live in ATLANTA, BALTIMORE, WASHINGTON DC and NYC. THE CAST AND I WILL BE COMING TO THESE CITIES BEFORE THE PREMIERE, SO HIT ME UP AND LET'S STAY CONNECTED!


Thank you for your love and support!
Maurice J.

I hope to God that I am at home in Atlanta to see this movie. I have been patiently waiting to see it. I think that Mr. Jamal selected a wonderful cast of actors to portray his characters.

The DVD is being released today. It has won several indie film awards. Not more can be said except buy, rent, or download the movie! You won’t be disappointed
