An enlightening new feature-length documentary, Girl, that follows several of the top female DJs of the early 2000s, and its Director Kandeyce Jorden’s own personal journey in the male-dominated industry, is now set for release on June 1.
Fifteen years in the making, Jorden emerges with intimate interviews and conversations with the top female EDM artists of the time such as DJ Rap, DJ Irene, Colette, DJ Lady D, and Sandra Collins.
Having spent years getting to know the American DJ, Sandra Collins, Jorden made it her mission to chronicle the parallels between Collins’ life and women’s ascensions, highs, and lows in the industry at large.
Thanks to a successful IndieGoGo campaign, Jorden has finally been able to finish her film and curated it with music from The Chemical Brothers, The Crystal Method, Gabriel & Dresden, and more.
Hopefully, by delving into the gender discrepancies and deep hierarchical imbalances of the industry, Girl offers up some answers of where things can go from here along the way.
Girl will be available for streaming on Amazon, iTunes, Google Play June 1.
