Co-directed by Ian MacKenzie and Nicole Sorochan
Music heals, right? Depends on the depths of the wounds. In Amplify Her, three Electronic Dance Music artists battle demons from their painful pasts to emerge as beacons in the global festival scene. Blondtron, Applecat and Lux Moderna overcome isolation, illness, and gender bias to give life to their creativity.
This visually dynamic film weaves animated motion comics created by the characters to offer intimate access into the colourful worlds of emerging female artists. Rather than ask the expected: “why aren’t there more women in this male dominated scene?”, we wonder: “what is unique about feminine expression and how might we all benefit when it flourishes?”
Amplify Her explores the rising women of the electronic music scene as they come-of-age amidst the emerging cultural renaissance of the feminine.
“… the film acts not just as a platform for female expression, but an example of how those changes could be implemented in Western society.” – The Georgia Straight
