Exclusive: Watch This Clip From Austin-Made Rap Road Trip Lost Soulz

First glimpse ahead of this weekend's theatrical release

Lost Soulz, the debut feature from Austin filmmaker Katherine Propper, screens this Friday at AFS Cinema.

Lost Soulz, Austin filmmaker Katherine Propper's rap road trip across Texas and through the convoluted lives of Gen Z artists, is heading for the big screen, and we have an exclusive clip to share.

In the Tribeca Film Festival-selected drama, Sauve Sidle plays Sol, a rising East Austin musician who finds himself going from house parties to the tour bus when he hooks up with a rising crew of lo-fi rappers.

The movie opens this weekend in Austin at AFS Cinema, with a special cast and crew screening and live musical performance ahead of its release on Blu-ray on June 4 from Kino Lorber. As Propper told the Chronicle before the film made its local debut at Sound Unseen Film + Music festival last December, the film's visuals reflects her filmmaking style, which she described as "naturalistic, but I hope also visually beautiful and aesthetically colorful."

In this exclusive clip from Lost Soulz, Sol and the crew hang out at a skate park, one of the gritty yet dreamlike locations they find on their voyage of self-discovery in which Sol's tensions with self-appointed group leader Seven (Aaron Melloul) start to become apparent.

Lost Soulz opens this Friday, May 10, at the AFS Cinema, 6259 Middle Fiskville. The opening night screening will include a post-show musical performance by cast members Malachi Mabson, Alex Brackney, Krystall Poppin, Micro TDH, and Sauve Sidle, followed by a Q&A with director Katherine Propper, producers Andrés Figueredo Thomson and Juan Carlos Figueredo, and the cast, hosted by Andrew Bujalski.
