A selection of the 2016 Cannes Film Festival competition and the New York Film Festival, STAYING VERTICAL is scheduled to open in New York on Friday, January 20 at The Film Society of Lincoln Center and the IFC Center, followed by a national roll out.

    *Performance by Capitaine Alexandre in French

    Marc Alexandre Oho Bambe is a French slammer poet, performer, author, and winner of the Prix Paul Verlaine de poésie de l’Académie Française.
