SUCOPRESS/Raquel Laguna. French filmmaker Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire directs Tye Sheridan and Sean Penn in ASPHALT CITY. In this interview, Jean-Stéphane talks about the biggest challenge making this movie, about shooting in New York and about what he learned during the filming of this drama. ASPHALT CITY follows Ollie Cross (Tye Sheridan), a young paramedic assigned to the NYC night shift with an uncompromising and seasoned partner Gene Rutkovsky (Sean Penn). The dark nights reveal a city in crisis; Rutkovsky guides Cross, as each 911 call is often dangerous and uncertain, putting their lives on the line every day to help others. Cross soon discovers firsthand the chaos and awe of a job that careens from harrowing to heartfelt, testing his relationship with Rutkovsky and the ethical ambiguity that can be the difference between life and death. Gbenga Akinnagbe, Michael Carmen Pitt, Katherine Waterston, Mike Tyson, Raquel Nave and Kali Reis also star in the movie. ASPHALT CITY, in theaters on March 29th, 2024.
