This astounding and inspirational documentary tells the story of an unlikely viral sensation that was born when YouTube mash-up artist Kutiman encountered a troubled New Orleans singer.
Presenting Princess Shaw, showing as part of the Sydney Film Festival, tells the story of Samantha, aka Princess Shaw. By day, she works in an old people’s home, but by night, she writes, records and posts songs on the internet.
Her heartfelt unaccompanied lyrics attracted Israel based musician Kutiman, who specialises in creating collages of Youtube videos by unknown artists.
Described for The Hollywood Reporter as a “pure positivity kick,” this film is a must see for LOTL readers.
