LOST SOULZ

    Part of Music City Mondays

    Embarking on a road trip from their New York premiere to screenings across Texas, the filmmakers and cast make a stop at the Belcourt along the way…

    When aspiring rapper Sol is discovered by a group of Gen-Z musicians after performing at a house party, he joins their tour through the heart of Texas and embarks on a once-in-a-lifetime road trip. Sol and his new collaborators bond over their shared pains and longings from the lives they left behind. Bold and brash, yet surprisingly sensitive and vulnerable, these young artists pour their souls into the music they create together. The novelty of Sol’s newfound family fades as the demons Sol left behind come back to haunt him, including his guilt over abandoning his ailing friend. His sense of self is put to the ultimate test as he seeks refuge from the rootlessness and loss that has defined his existence. Set to a lo-fi, genre-bending hip-hop soundtrack, Katherine Propper’s award-winning debut is suffused with a hazy and infectious energy and features virtuosic musical performances, from the tour van to the stage, that allow the ensemble’s winning chemistry to shine.

    “Buoyed by its charismatic lead performance, LOST SOULZ makes for an entertaining ride. Its structure, cinematography and (especially) the choreography of musical scenes show the confidence of its first-time filmmaker.” —Murtada Elfadl, Variety

    A fascinating visual language that somehow captures a movement in Texas teen culture that has so far evaded a clear description, a particular angle of intersection between various forces that don't seem to make sense before they converge.  It's akin to how bubbas and freaks found some common ground in Austin's cosmic cowboy scene, and it sparkles here, like the moment when the collective records a music video.” —Richard Whittaker, Austin Chronicle 

    “It’s a story which invites trust and faith in humanity even as it acknowledges that life involves risks. This fits in perfectly with [Propper’s] ability to find beauty in almost any landscape, and a sense of wonder at a wide world glimpsed for the first time.” —Jennie Kermode, Eye For Film
