When Electronic Dance Music was blowing up around the world
and DJs were becoming superstars, director Kandeyce Jorden began making this film to profile the top women behind the decks. She discovered and interviewed DJ Irene, DJ Colette, DJ Rap and many others, but when she met the legendary DJ Sandra Collins, her interest became an obsession. Documenting Collins’ rise to
superstar DJ status led Jorden around the world and down a rabbit
hole. Twelve years in the making, GIRL is about music, love, and
what you find when you get really lost.

Director Statement

I began this film because of my love for electronic music, and I had the sense that there was a lot to learn from the women DJs who were pioneers in the scene, so I began to interview them and document their music. What I didn't realize was that on the journey I would reconnect with an unawakened part of myself. All portraits are self portraits. This is the magic of film, art and music. While I don't think I would ever consider working on another twelve-year-long project, I wouldn't consider making art that didn't truly come from the heart.
