Synopsis

Houston, Texas. A hurricane makes its way, ready to consume people and dreams alike. The rapper and former gang leader Alex is hugging the walls to avoid retaliation and bury her best friend. Will and Nate, two wandering souls from the upper class districts, struggle against their addictions and dysfunctional families. From this ambient disarray, their symphony breaks free.

Cyclones frequently come to sweep the streets of Houston, haunted by both dead and living ghosts.

Alexandra, Tay, Will and Nate compose rhythms and words in the middle of the strongly cleaved city. From the ambient, almost chaotic decadence, break out the cries they decide to sing.

Houston, relentlessly drowned in cyclones, raises its hyperbolic skyscrapers and outrageous neon lights against the elements. Alexandra and Tay on one side, Will and Nate on the other, all do their best not to let themselves get swallowed by this city and all its excesses.

Nicolas PEDUZZI

Nicolas Peduzzi is a french comedian and director. Born in 1982 in Paris, he studies theater and cinema in New York, which led him to co-writing the boards of an off broadway play directed by Susan Batson. He then directs several shorts and videos. Back to Paris, Nicolas works for Luc Bondy with an appearance in “Les fausses confidences”, or with a role in “Ivanov”, played at the Odeon Theatre. He creates his first feature film, the documentary “Southern Belle” which already observes his texan protagonists. Released in 2018, the movie wins the grand prize of FID Marseille, and gets into the “best documentaries of the month” selection of 2019.

Press

Yann Tobin, Positif
 

"The film contains a breathtaking scene, as only documentaries can produce (...). It is magical. If only for this moment of grace, Ghost Song deserves to be remembered."

Camille Griner, Les écrans terribles

"Ghost Song is a heartfelt cry from a trio of magnified losers as Hurricane Harvey threatens to wipe them off the map. The rage before the storm".

Cinema Teaser

"From furious hip hop to twilight folk, from the chic suburbs to the worst ghettos, from rich people fights to real shootings at the gas station, it is a whole American mythology that unfolds before Nicolas Peduzzi's camera."
