Description

Amplify Her Vancouver - a Feature Documentary, Graphic Novel and Motion Comic Series

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 and 30 female creatives from around North America (over half from Vancouver) 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?"

Shot at festivals around the world including: Bass Coast, Burning Man, Center of Gravity, Enchanted Forest, Envision, Erotica Electronica, Faerieworlds, Groove, Rainbow Serpent, Rifflandia, Shambhala, Sonic Bloom, Tall Tree, Luminosity amd Lucidity.

Amplify Her Graphic Novel


FILM SYNOPSIS

Blondtron is an outspoken, openly sexual music producer who crafted her latest track, 'Set Your Pussy Free' as an anthem for empowering women. Yet as she transitions into an entrepreneur launching her own tech company, her raunchy antics prevent her from being taken seriously.

AppleCat is a sharp-witted DJ with heart, struggling to make ends meet - raising her young daughter by day and occasionally gigging as an online 'camgirl' at night. Her gift lies in creating soundscapes that allow others to release their sexual shame, yet to truly succeed, she must first forgive herself.

On the heels of beating a mysterious decade-long illness, Lux Moderna channels her healing mantras into her music, creating spaces of shamanic transformation on the dance floor. Yet her biggest challenge awaits her: stepping out from behind the decks and performing as a center-stage priestess.

Amplify HER explores these rising stars and more (CloZee, Kytami, Wala, and A 100 Drums) as they come-of-age amidst the emerging cultural renaissance of the feminine.
