"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."Variety

"It’s a story which invites trust and faith in humanity even as it acknowledges that life involves risks." Eye for Film

"Lost Soulz is like the Oscar-winning Nomadland with rap music."Aisle Seat


In the heart of Texas, Sol (rapper and influencer Sauve Sidle) is an aspiring young musician living with his best friend Wesley (Siyanda Stillwell), whose family has embraced him as a brother. After a raucous night causes Wesley to overdose, Sol abandons him at a house party, and eventually chooses to leave home for good and join a touring group of hip-hop artists.

In this gritty, southern hip-hop odyssey, Katherine Propper draws intimate and heartfelt performances from her charismatic cast of musicians and artists, who call from their own lived experiences. Filled with imaginatively choreographed musical performances, youthful energy, and the mature weight of self-reflection, Propper's crowdpleasing road trip saga is a modern fable of self-discovery.
