Amplify Her is a film, graphic novel and animated motion comic series that explores the rise of female artists in the electronic music scene.


Imagined and brought to life by more than 21 female creators across North America – mainly from the Pacific Northwest – the 89-minute feature follows seven up-and-coming stars as they find their unique voices within a male-dominated realm.


On the surface, it’s a story about women in the electronic music industry, but the film’s deeper message is the resurgence of “the feminine” in Western culture.


COWICHAN PREMIERE


The Amplify Her premiere is coming to Duncan - the film will be introduced by the co-directors Ian MacKenzie and Nicole Sorochan, with a post-screening discussion including AppleCat.


The 144 graphic novels will be available for purchase, covering topics covered include illness, cyberbullying, sexual conformity, emotional vulnerability and self-image.


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.

After Party hosted by Dance Temple Cowichan


Join us as we dance into inspiration from the garden of amplified creativity.
Move your body to harmonies and beats shared by Ali Genevieve, Christy Greenwood and Applecat.


"A Revolution without dancing is not a Revolution worth having"


International Storyteller, beat weaver, poet, and vocalist; AppleCat was raised on the West Coast of Canada, and specializes in Deep Bass, Cosmic Carnal, Dubstep, Gypsywubs, Trap, World, and IDM. Music and the dance it invokes has been her number one passion since they day she was born.
Poetry and grace, mixed with live mashup, reworking, blending melodic cosmic sound, with carnal deep bass - AppleCat's sets bend the perception of "genre" and plus a little "je ne sais quoi."


AppleCat is also the focus of a feature documentary about women in electronic music ‘Amplify Her’, releasing worldwide in 2017. http://www.amplifyher.com/
