Music heals, right? Depends on the depths of the wounds. In AMPLIFY HER, three Electronic Music artists battle current barriers and demons from their pasts to emerge as beacons in the global festival scene.
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: “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?”
