The Israeli documentary PRESENTING PRINCESS SHAW (formerly titled THRU YOU PRINCESS) will screen on Wednesday, March 2, 2016 as the month's Doc Soup selection. 

Presented by Hot Docs and the Calgary International Film Festival, the screening will take place at Cineplex Eau Claire at 7 p.m.

PRESENTING PRINCESS SHAW chronicles a cross-continental musical collaboration between American YouTube persona Princess Shaw and the Israeli mash-up artist who propels her into internet fame. 

When 38-year-old Samantha Montgomery's YouTube videos are sampled by Tel Aviv musician Kutima as part of his "Thru You" YouTube mash-up project, Princess Shaw's popularity explodes.  

A crowd-pleasing documentary about an everyday performer and a stranger who admires her work, PRESENTING PRINCESS SHAW explores themes of loneliness, anonymity and connectivity in the digital age.

Individual tickets for PRESENTING PRINCESS SHAW are now available
