Storyline

In every corner of the world, at any given moment, random people post personal video clips online. They are their virtual messages in a bottle, tossed into the boundless sea that is the Internet. Most of these posts flounder in a sad limbo of indifference and anonymity-unless your YouTube handle happens to be Princess Shaw. Samantha Montgomery, 38, lives alone in one of New Orleans' toughest neighborhoods. By day she works as a caregiver for the elderly; at night she transforms into Princess Shaw, belting out soulful originals at sparsely attended open mic nights and posting homemade a cappella clips on YouTube, usually reaching just a handful of viewers. One of her followers happens to be Kutiman, a.k.a. Ophir Kutiel, an Israeli musician living on a kibbutz outside Tel Aviv, who mashes up YouTube videos from all over the world to create new musical pieces. Princess Shaw has no idea that he has found hers. A rousing documentary crowd-pleaser about a star-crossed singer-songwriter and ... Written by Ido Haar

When east and west meet at the Arts
23 May 2016 | by nuritnuritgSee all my reviews

Hollywood lost its ability to let people be people and express themselves naked. In Hollywood you have to have money, you have to be outstandingly beautiful, or handsome, and appearance flaws are well covered, to the point of no recognition of what the person really looks like. Then there is that Hollywood technic of sound, photography and other effects to complete the camouflage to perfection. And out of nowhere, come two Israelis, Ido Haar and Ophir Kutiel, and the star of the film, the American Samantha Montgomery who do not live in a Hollywood chosen filming location, who wear t-shirts and jeans and are not really trained actor or sophisticated producer or director but they have soul,they have a story to tell, they have the insight and their story moves your own emotions and catches your heart tight. The docufilm is riveting; Samantha's heart-to-heart talk with her audience and her story she tells through her songs are deep penetrating. An amazing story that two Israelis have picked on and have taken it to the top level of film art. Once again Israel is showing the world that it leads in films' content.
