Saw Lady Plays the World

Saw Lady Plays the World

I filmed Natalia “Saw Lady” Paruz in the Summer of 2010, right around the time I was filming Marjorie Eliot and her Sunday Jazz concerts. If you only knew of Natalia as the woman who plays the musical saw in the New York City subways you are in for a treat. Versions of what I filmed that day at her home in Queens (a small museum, really) existed online for eight years but I was never 100% happy with the videos. So I re-edited and remixed them with bonus footage.
