Sounds Queer

GER 2013 | Dir. Dan (Bahl) Dansen | 76 min

In portraying the three DJs – Tama Sumo, Resom & Ena Lind – Sounds Queer considers the question whether female DJs gain different experiences than their male colleagues. The portraits give an insight into the subjective environment of the protagonists and their conflicts in this field still dominated by men.

Tama Sumo started Djing in Berlin in the 1990s and now holds a residency at Berghain/Panoramabar, a club which is known all over the world. Resom moved from Leipzig to Berlin in order to further enhance her DJ-career and because she wants to organize events at ://about blank, a club run by a collective, which operates in the tradition of Techno-D.I.Y.-culture but also aims at transporting left wing political ideas. Ena Lind is the organizer of the queer and feminist “Bend Over“-events, which take place all over Europe. She now wants to approach her DJ-career more professionally. Sounds Queer draws a fascinating portrait of Berlin, Feminism, Nerdity, queer life, the love for music, the aspiration for self-fulfillment and Djing as a profession.
