PRESENTING PRINCESS SHAW

Director IDO HAAR
Year 2015
Runtime 80 MINUTES
Country USA

By day, Samantha Montgomery cares for the elderly in New Orleans. By night, she writes and sings her own songs as Princess Shaw on her confessional YouTube channel. Raw and vulnerable, her voice is a diamond in the rough. Across the globe in Israel, Ophir Kutiel creates video mash ups of amateur Youtube performers. Known as Kutiman, he is a composer, a musician, and a pioneering video artist embraced by the world of fine art. Kutiman transforms sampling into a multimedia art, whether at his home on a kibbutz in Israel or at a live performance at the Guggenheim in New York. 

Two strangers, almost 7,000 miles apart, begin to build a song.

The film unfolds as Kutiman pairs Princess Shaw’s emotional performances in a beautiful expression of generosity and compassion, revealing the bonafide star underneath and her fight to never give up on her dreams.

After the screening will be a talk-back and performance with Princess Shaw, followed by a reception.
