Documentarian Garry Beitel returns with this kaleidoscopic portrait of artistically fearless klezmer hip-hop artist Socalled, aka Josh Dolgin. A pianist, singer, arranger, rapper, producer and composer (and also a magician, filmmaker, and visual artist), he’s blasting through the boundaries that separate music from different cultures, eras and generations. Filmed in Socalled’s Montreal neighborhood, where Hasidic Jews and hipsters crowd the sidewalks, and in New York, France and Ukraine.
