Sam Marie-Saint: Sodapop
With a title inspired by the name of the character in the acclaimed book The Outsiders, by S.E. Hinton, Sodapop is a love letter to French New Wave cinema. Also inspired by classic Italian cinema, this story of culture on the fringes features tales and portraits of the iconoclasts, rebels, punks, and romantics, all set in Downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn in the span of predominantly one summer. The glamorous and the rebellious, fishnets and cigarettes, improvised on New York City’s streets, rooftops, hotels, and dive bars in raw, immediate form.
