The 39th Portland International Film Festival: THRU YOU PRINCESS

Thru You Princess copy

The Israeli musician and artist Kutiman rose to fame with his “Thru You” project, which mashes up samples from You Tube clips featuring amateur musicians. Samantha, a nurse in New Orleans, uploads her songs and candid video diaries, hoping for an audience. Director Ido Haar documents her attempt to make it in the music scene in her hometown and mixes these scenes with footage of Kutiman at home on a kibbutz, watching Samantha online, singing her a cappella vocals and sampling them in a video. Samantha couldn’t possibly imagine that halfway around the world, there’s someone who is about to expand her audience to numbers beyond her wildest dreams. (80 mins.)

Sponsored by the Consulate General of Israel to the Pacific Northwest.
