World Premiere

FEATURE | United States | 95 MINUTES | English |


Documentary, Music

Filmmaker Beth Aala takes us behind the scenes of Alicia Keys' She Is The Music songwriting camp in this revealing look at the music business that focuses on the lack of access and opportunity granted to young black and brown women. The camp’s participants take center stage as they try to break through the industry with the next big hit song. Ayoni is from Barbados, following Rihanna’s footsteps while reaching for the same stars. Atlanta's DaVionne got a break collaborating with known artists and now works on her writing and recording. Chicago-born Jean Deaux does it all on her own — writing, recording, and producing while touring with successful acts. 

The audience is taken on a journey with these young women — from performing on the road to intimate sessions at the camp — and they hear from professional mentors, including Keys, as they share their ambitions and challenges. Along the way, Keys shares her struggles in the music industry as well as her dedication to working with and championing opportunities for women in music to help them succeed. ––Deborah Rudolph

After the Premiere: A performance from She Is The Music artists Jean Deaux, Ayoni and DaVionne curated by Alicia Keys.
