We are excited to bring AMPLIFY HER to you for the Melbourne stop of the Purple Carpet Tour!
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 – 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.

// 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 Hundred Drums) as they come-of-age amidst the emerging cultural renaissance of the feminine.

// WORKSHOP – “Invoking the Feminine Within”
Alejandra from Dancing Eros will guide us through a powerful experience to guide us back to the feminine that resides in each of us. Through movement, music and dialogue we come into connection with our own feminine and learn to invoke and allow this part of ourselves to come to life.
