PLAY YOUR GENDER is a documentary on the realities of being a woman in the music industry. The songs we consume and the musicians we revere say a lot about our culture’s values and the multi-billion dollar music industry has a huge social and economic impact on our society. Through these conversations, we aim to uncover how and why the gendered authorship gap exists despite the immense talent and popularity of female musicians.
Juno Award-winning musician Kinnie Starr is on a quest to find out why only 5% of music producers are women even though many of the most bankable pop stars are female. What does it take for a woman to make it in music?
