A new documentary underscoring the blatant lack of female inclusivity in the dance music industry is primed for its world premiere.

Sponsored by Bud Light Canada, "Underplayed" will feature a litany of influential women in the electronic dance music scene, including REZZ, NERVO, Anna Lunoe, Alison Wonderland, and TOKiMONSTA, among others, who will wax poetic about their gross underrepresentation in a modern musical zeitgeist they helped to popularize. The film will also explore their insights into how women can champion change in a historically male-dominated industry.

"The world of electronic music was created to promote diversity and inclusion," Bud Light pointed out in a tweet. "Yet, in 2019, only 5 of the world's top 100 DJs were women."

The company also shared the doc's official trailer, which will soon premiere at TIFF, a nonprofit organization that offers screenings, lectures, discussions, festivals, workshops, events, and more to present the best of international and Canadian cinema. "I don't like to talk about it a lot, but there is definitely sexism in the music industry," Alison Wonderland asserts in the clip.
