Working in the music industry as a photographer for eight years, Shepparton resident Michelle Grace Hunder became concerned about gender inequality and imbalance in the profession.
Passionate to create conversations of change, Ms Hunder enlisted the help of friend and filmmaker Claudia Sangiorgi Dalimore to produce Her Sound, Her Story.
During the past three years, the pair has interviewed 40 women across four decades and all genres of music.
The artists include Tina Arena, Kate Ceberano, Missy Higgins and Kasey Chambers.
‘‘I wanted to explore gender disparity for these women, discuss their issues and see what their thoughts are,’’ Ms Hunder said.
The 70-minute documentary became a labour of love for the two women, completely self -funded and independent.
‘‘We are both very passionate about the topic,’’ Ms Hunder said.
Her Sound, Her Story premieres at the Human Rights Film Festival on Friday, May 11, in Melbourne before visiting Shepparton.
Ms Hunder and Ms Sangiorgi Dalimore will hold a workshop at Wanganui Park Secondary College, discussing their careers and gender disparity for women in filmmaking and photography.
A free screening of Her Sound, Her Story will be hosted at Village Cinemas, Shepparton, on Tuesday, May 15, at 7pm.
