Upcoming Documentary ‘Underplayed’ Examines Sexism Within Dance Music

Underplayed is a documentary film coming to Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in September. It examines sexism within the dance music industry and the struggles that women in electronic music face.

Filmed over the course of the 2019 summer festival season, Stacey Lee’s project exposes gender inequality in the scene with an overall uplifting tone — because it is getting better, thanks to strong female artists REZZ, Alison Wonderland, NERVO, TOKiMONSTA and more.

The story of the forthcoming documentary reads:
“Electronic music was born from the ideals of diversity, community, and inclusivity, and yet in 2019 only 5 of the top 100 DJs were women. Filmed over the summer festival season, Underplayed presents a portrait of the current status of gender, ethnic, and sexual equality issues through the lens of the female pioneers, next-generation artists, and industry leaders who are championing the change and inspiring a more diverse pool of role models for future generations. Ultimately, the film explores how gender disparity happens, a theme that transcends music and finds relevance in many of today’s industries.”

Underplayed is set to screen at the OLG Play Stage at Ontario Place on Saturday, September 19 and will be followed by a live set from REZZ.
