SOKO CO-STARS IN "A GOOD MAN"

Soko and Noémie Merlant co-star as Aude and Benjamin in Marie-Castille Mention-Schaar's film A GOOD MAN. Benjamin is a trans man who wants to stop his transitioning long enough to carry the baby that he and his girlfriend Aude want to have. (Aude cannot have children.) Soko said that they worked with a lot of trans men during the writing process (the screenplay was written by Mention-Schaar and Christian Sonderegger) to make the relationship in the film feel real. Below is a behind-the-scenes video "Ne regrettez pas souvenez-vous" (Don't regret, remember), posted by Ladyonfire28 on Tumblr.

QUOTES FROM SOKO

CREATING CLEAN

Soko - photo by Chuck Grant "I smoked weed for the very first time when I was twenty-eight. And I smoke weed occasionally. But it's really not an issue. It's like something I would do like once a month if I'm making music or if I'm in the studio or it's around. But it's really not a thing in my life. I'm not addicted to it, I don't buy it. I don't have it around. And also it's natural, and it has so many healing properties. I did drink red wine once, about four years ago"”a one-night thing for Halloween, for my best friend's birthday, and it was awful. I got allergic to it. I couldn't even open my eyes for a week. It's the last time I drank."

MOST MEMORABLE GIG

"I was in Leipzig, Germany doing a movie and I just posted something on Facebook like "Hey, I'm going to be there tomorrow night. I don't know anyone over here, but would you guys want to come if I played a show? Find me somewhere and I'll be there". And they wrote, "Oh, you could play in that park, by the pond". I agreed, and I asked the director of the movie that I was doing if he wanted to come to see me play a few acoustic songs. When we got there, there were like three hundred people who had come over within only four or five hours. Everyone bought candles and blankets and tea and stuff. It was totally dark in this park. I was playing acoustic with no microphone or anything and it was just impossible. I asked people to raise their hands so I would go and play where there were the most raised hands and I would change location at each song. It was one of those really amazing shows and I played for two hours. I thought there were going to be about ten people there. It was the most beautiful thing ever."

THE STIGMA OF BISEXUALITY

"I just did an interview for a gay women's magazine in France. They asked me something about lesbians who are anti-bi. I had no idea people like that existed. It's weird to me. Everyone is all about fighting homophobia, but then homosexuals are straight-o-phobic, or bi-o-phobic. It's like, 'Stop being a fucking hypocrite about it! You want people to tolerate you for not being like them, but then you go and do this.' You can't march for equal rights and then not tolerate someone who isn't like you."
