Description

Five years in the making, Amplify Her is here!

The Amplify Purple Carpet Tour is coming to San Francisco. As a purple carpet stop we have many surprises including guest appearances from the filmmakers, a few artists, and a lively discussion. Our graphic novels will be hot-off-the-press, and you will be the very first in the world to get your hands on one. 

Partner sponsor: Keyframe Entertainment + Co-presented by: Bioneers

FILM SYNOPSIS

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?"
