About AMPLIFY HER
Part motion comic, part live action, Amplify Her is a documentary film sparking conversations and selling out boutique events around the world. Now there is a unique opportunity in Amsterdam to experience this amazing documentary with one of the film’s lead characters DJ AppleCat from Canada in attendance, she will will introduce the film as well as participate in Q&A after the screening, followed by a live DJ set!
Amplify Her explores the rise of female artists against the backdrop of the global electronic music festival scene from Burning Man (Nevada) to Rainbow Serpent (Australia). Imagined and brought to life by more than 21 female creators across North America, this lush and visually dynamic world blurs the line between fiction and reality while demonstrating the power of letting women tell their own stories.
The film deftly examines the ways that each individual views their gender in relation to their art, and in doing so, illuminates the difficult questions at the heart of modern-day feminism. Whether equality can be gained if women erase the differences between genders, or whether if women focus on celebrating femininity, it will elevate the importance of diversity.
Featuring AppleCat, Blondtron, CloZee, Lux Moderna, A Hundred Drums, Kytami, and WALA, each of the artists rise through their unique challenges (including illness, sexism, and childhood trauma), to claim their voice and celebrate the power of sisterhood.

“A Revolution without dancing is not a Revolution worth having”
Internationally acclaimed musician, and vocalist; AppleCat was raised on the WestCoast of Canada, specializing in Deep Dubstep, Fairytale Bass, Trap, and Worldbeat. On the dance floor, she creates a shared underworld dance – stating that her intention is to ” have us all come out the other side moved in some way – the kind of movement that is far beyond solely somatic.”
Poetry and grime, with live mashup & reworks, AppleCat blends cinematic sound, with primal bass. This cosmic booty bouncing, dubwitch set’s bend the perception of “genre” exemplifying her unparalleled “je ne sais quoi.”
AppleCat is also the focus of a feature documentary about women in electronic music ‘Amplify Her’, released worldwide in 2017.
