This ingenious documentary unmasks the performer known as Socalled. The director showcases Socalled’s unique hybrid of Klezmer and Hip-hop and his quirky, lovable personality. There’s lots of live concert footage, including a cruise down the Dnieper River in the Ukraine and a gig at Harlem’s Apollo Theater with noted funk artist Fred Wesley and breakthrough Klezmer clarinetist David Krakauer. Benjamin Steiger Levine, the brains behind Socalled’s hit music video "Never Alone", gives us a backstage tour. 2010 Winner, J.I. Segal Award.

Part of the Boston Jewish Film Festival
