DIRECTING TEAM MARC LEVY + MARC SALOMON ARE THE CREATIVE FORCE BEHIND INDIGENOUS FILMS.
Marc Salomon grew up in Washington D.C. and San Diego and studied neurobiology and visual arts at the University of California, Berkeley. After graduating with honors, he pursued a professional soccer career all the way to Argentina, where he played for Boca Juniors. In the locker rooms, stands, and streets of Boca, the epicenter of Argentinian soccer, Marc came to know the Argentine people: their struggles, their spirits, their collective love of the sport. This is where Marc’s passion for humanistic storytelling was born.
In New Orleans, everything tells a story—the art, the music, the sports. Born and raised in this city, Marc knew that he would tell stories, too. With this knowledge, Marc went on to study art at Tulane University, where he also played rugby and produced music with some of NOLA’s best underground hip-hop artists. Onward to California, where Marc earned an MFA in Film Production from Chapman University, with an emphasis on cinematography. Through film, he’s been telling stories about art, music and sports ever since.
