VdR On Tour | Concert and screening

On 11 October at La Gravière Geneva: a live concert by Kutiman Orchestra followed by the screening of PRINCESS SHAW, Audience Awards at VdR2016.


Kutiman is a real phenomenon. Musician, producer and pioneer in visual arts, known all around the world with his project ThruYOU, mash up videos with millions of views on YouTube, that inspired the documentary film PRINCESS SHAW, Audience award at Visions du Réel 2016. He plays with the Kutiman Orchestra, a great band of 8 musicians that invite to an incredible afro-psychedelic journey, somewhere between James Brown's funky grooves and the cosmical jazz madness of Sun Ra. 


Concert followed by the screening of PRINCESS SHAW, in collaboration with Visions du Réel On Tour
A young woman who works during the day as a care assistant in a nursing home, transforms into Princess Shaw at night, and posts her a cappella songs on YouTube. She lives in a deprived area of New Orleans and has always had a hard life. This is what she talks and sings about in front of the camera that she uses like a diary. On the other side of the world, in a kibbutz near Tel Aviv, Kutiman, a musician famous for having created unique pieces mixing songs and notes gathered on the web, listens to her and, without her knowing, decides to help her… A tale of Cinderella replayed in the Internet age. Ido Haar who, a few years ago gave us a moving story about the inevitable and tormented cohabitation between Israelis and Palestinians, with 9 Star Hotel, continues his humanist film approach, using the camera like a bridge between beings. This is therefore how an unforgettable character, a great artist, and the filmmaker who brings them together, give life to a touching film that lets us still believe in miracles.
