RHYTHMS ON AND OFF THE SCREEN

Presenting Princess Shaw

IDO HAAR
Israel, 2015
80 minutes, Color

By day, Samantha Montgomery cares for the elderly in one of New Orleans's toughest neighborhoods. 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, Ophir Kutiel creates video mashups of amateur YouTube performers. Known as Kutiman, he is a composer, musician, and pioneering video artist. 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 bona fide star underneath and her fight to never give up on her dreams.—South by Southwest
