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.

Katherine Propper is known for her short film Birds, which earned the AFI Grand Jury Prize and the SXSW Jury Award for Vision.

Reviews

Variety review gave the film high marks, writing, “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. Propper, who counts fellow Texas-based filmmakers Terrence Malick and Richard Linklater among her influences, has a commanding feel for constructing narrative out of music. “Lost Soulz” makes for a successful calling card for her and Sidle’s burgeoning careers.”

The Austin Chronicle review agreed, “Propper’s greatest success is that she doesn’t overdramatize tragedy and trauma. Awful things do occur, but in an organic way, so that the inevitable reaction is a sense of stunned shock. That’s why there’s no sense of judgement: Instead, there is just Propper’s overwhelming sense of empathy for what it is to be young right now.”
