LOST SOULZ Trailer: Gen-Z Rappers Travel In Search of America

Sauve Sidle in Katherine Propper's LOST SOULZ

Anyone who enjoys a contemporary road trip film should be on the lookout for Lost Soulz. Written and directed by Katherine Propper in her directorial debut, it premiered at the 2023 Tribeca Film Festival where it was runner-up for the Narrative Audience Award. It follows young, aspiring rap artist Sol who leaves behind his surrogate family and hits the road across Texas with fellow young artists on tour. Filling their days with weed-induced trips, breathtaking views, and making new music, they contemplate self-discovery and what the future holds for them. It stars Sauve Sidle, Micro TDH, Krystall Poppin, Siyanda “Yung Bambi” Stillwell, Malachi Mabson, Aaron “Seven” Melloul, Tauran “Big 40 Thrax” Ambroise, and Alex Brackney. Kino Lorber has released the official trailer ahead of its release on May 3.

Here’s the official synopsis:

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.

Lost Soulz will open at NYC’s Roxy Cinema on May 3, before expanding nationwide.
