Sisters with Transistors free screening at The Yellow in Wembley Park





Sisters with Transistors - free screening

Join The Yellow and Filmscope for a free screening of Sisters with Transistors.

Sisters With Transistors follows the story of three women who played a major role in the development of electronic music. In the early days of electronic music, women were often overlooked and their contributions were not fully recognized.

However, these three women - Suzanne Ciani, Delia Derbyshire, and Daphne Oram - were pioneers in the field, and their work has had a major impact on the direction of electronic music. The film chronicles their stories and explores their legacy, revealing how their work has shaped the sound of electronic music today.

With the wider social, political and cultural context of the 20th century as our backdrop, this all archival documentary reveals a unique emancipation struggle, restoring the central role of women in the history of music and society at large.

Sisters with Transistors is more than just the history of a music genre: it's the story of how we hear and the critical but little-known role female pioneers play in that story.

Please stay for a Special Live Performance from Rachel D'Arcy as PARAFOX.

A film by LISA ROVNER | PG | Doors open at 6.30pm for a 7.30pm start.

"One of 2021's very best films... a portrait of revolution that feels strangely timeless"
