SOHO, LONDON 1959
Jazz dictates the rules of engagement.
Musicians command the streets.
Booze is the currency of choice.
Drugs are the business of the future.
Love is what everybody is looking for.
Words get lost in the mayhem.
ADRIFT IN SOHO - THE MOVIE is based on the 1961 novel of the same name written by COLIN WILSON and is directed by Pablo Behrens in the style of a 1950s Free Cinema documentary.
"The film is set in Soho in the year before the 1960s revolution in London but it also could be anytime and anyplace: societies need an escape hatch from conservatism and conventionality all the time. Never like Soho in the 1950s though as all sorts of rebels, bums, beatniks, artists and bohemians bunched up there over ten years until their lifestyles provided the critical mass for social change."
Pablo Behrens, director of Adrift in Soho - the movie
