If you’re involved in the music industry, you don’t want to miss this. Australian documentary Her Sound, Her Story has announced it’s Newcastle premiere – screening at Tower Cinemas on Tuesday, October 16th.
Her Sound, Her Story is an intimate conversation unveiling the personal experiences, histories and significant social impacts of women in the Australian music industry. Featuring more than 45 artists spanning over six decades, its unique narrative creates a powerful dialogue that extends beyond the music industry to ask, “Where do we want women’s voices to sit in the world today?”
The interviews collected by Her Sound, Her Story are simply remarkable; the names range from Sampa The Great and Zan Rowe to Missy Higgins and Kate Ceberano. The film also features interviews with Newcastle artists Dawn Laird and Kira Puru.
Her Sound, Her Story was greatest by filmmaker Claudia Sangiorgi and photographer Michelle Grace Hunder who created the film over a three-year period. Jen Cloher said that the documentary is “A bold, exhilarating, heartfelt, extraordinarily honest account from some of our most talented artists”
The documentary premiered at the Human Rights Arts & Film Festival in Melbourne back in May, and has been screening up and down the East Coast since then to rave reviews. Now, the documentary will be touring around the country in September and October; going to Adelaide, Alice Springs, Brisbane, Byron Bay, Coffs Harbour, Brunswick Heads, Newcastle, and Sydney – with future plans to hit Melbourne, Cairns, Perth, and Castlemaine.
