Poly Styrene: I Am a Cliché

As the frontwoman of X-Ray Spex (and the first woman of color in the UK to lead such a successful band), Poly Styrene introduced a new sound of rebellion. Using punk as a vehicle for social commentary, her work was a key inspiration for the riot grrl and Afropunk movements. Following her death, her daughter sets out to understand her legacy, disentangle their own fraught relationship, and, ultimately, grieve.

Sisters With Transistors

Narrated by Laurie Anderson, SISTERS WITH TRANSISTORS is a masterful archival documentary that restores the centrality of women to the origins of electronic music. Featuring Clara Rockmore, Delia Derbyshire, Suzanne Ciani and more, this story of how we hear demonstrates how new devices opened music to the entire field of sound and how changing the modes of production also transformed the very terms of musical thought.

Underplayed

UNDERPLAYED uses a whirlwind summer festival season to illuminate the ways that women are underrepresented in the electronic music industry. Focusing on relative celebrity DJs (Rezz, Alison Wonderland) as well as less well known but rising figures (Tygapaw, Sherelle), this documentary explores the music industry creating and perpetuating gender (and other) inequities. Missing a sweaty late night at the Marcus Amphitheatre? This film will fill that void and challenge you to consume more equitably all at once.
