Young Professionals Night at The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival: Party, Film and Post-Film Concert Featuring Socalled and Katie Moore
The “Socalled” Movie _is a musical joyride and kaleidoscopic portrait of eclectic Canadian musical wizard Josh Dolgin, aka Socalled, who fuses traditional klezmer and Yiddish sounds with modern beats. Defying simple categorization, Socalled borrows freely and brilliantly from disparate musical influences including funk, hip-hop, salsa, gospel, classical and lounge. Through various vignettes, cameras follow the multifaceted artist as he collaborates with seasoned musicians, performs magic tricks, slaps paint onto canvas and produces bizarre music videos. He achieved cult status online after his hit single ”You Are Never Alone” garnered more than two million views on YouTube.
From the streets of Montreal, to concert tours, to an emotionally spiritual trip to his ancestral home in Ukraine, The “Socalled” Movie charts the personal quest of an obsessive personality as he excavates, then deconstructs his Jewish musical heritage to create an illuminating union of cultures.
