Amplify HER explores the rising women of the electronic music scene as they come-of-age amidst the emerging cultural renaissance of the feminine.

 

Since 2002, the Guardians have held an integral role at the Temple of Burning Man. They have remained largely invisible, holding space from the shadows. Until now.
