In this rhythmic exploration of gender inequality, director Stacey Lee imprints a new record of the electronic music industry. Lee gives visibility to and amplifies an underplayed history of pioneering female artists from Delia Derbyshire and Suzanne Ciani—making waves since the birth of electronic music—to contemporary DJs Sherelle, Alison Wonderland, and Rezz as they continue to navigate, survive and change an industry wrought with vulnerability, exploitation, toxic egos, and misogyny.

This revealing music documentary questions a culture of exclusion through portraits of leading female artists and interviews with industry players. At Coachella, a fearless new generation of female artists take centre stage, shaking away prejudice and pushing forward a movement for a more equal and inclusive future of the music industry.—Luke Moody



After the Movie: A World Class performance by iconic Brooklyn artist, Tygapaw, presenting an inspiring interactive vision of electronic music today.
