Presenting Princess Shaw

“A soulful salute to a distinctly 21st-century phenomenon that’s also an old-fashioned fairy tale come true.” (The Hollywood Reporter)The sensational Presenting Princess Shaw, directed by former JBFC artist-in-residence Ido Haar and coproduced by JBFC founder Steve Apkon, kicks off this year’s festival. It’s the extraordinary Cinderella story of an artistic collaboration between an Israeli remix artist, Kutiman, and an obscure, supremely talented New Orleans–based vocalist, Princess Shaw. Kutiman practices his art by sampling bits from amateur YouTube postings—a little girl’s piano recital, a cellist playing Bach, an electric guitar solo—and assembling them into original works in a project called “Thru You” that’s earned millions of hits. The film has thrilled audiences virtually everywhere it has played along its triumphant festival route: at Jerusalem, Toronto, Amsterdam, and others.
