Christina Rowatt is a producer, editor and the host of The Void with Christina. Christina has interviewed some of the largest bands in heavy music and in 2019 she got to follow War On Women around as they played Australia version of Download Festival.
The 40 minute film follows the band around the festival and on the way we meet members of Rise Against, Converge and others. Throughout the documentary we see thoughts on feminism, equal rights for all genders within the music industry and a cry for more diversity in the business with clips from global protests where women march for their human rights.
While these clips play, Christina says: “I can’t communicate the chronic terror of living with someone who is stronger and meaner, who can beat you everyday, but it is a reality for a lot of women.”
She takes War On Women as an example: “One of the reasons War On Women are important is exploring this rage, our rage, on record, and onstage.”
Christina continues: “when our songs, and our voices, and our riffs join the chorus, we’re stronger. Our voices together make us all louder.”
At one point Shawna Potter, frontwoman of War On Women, asks Tim McIlrath of Rise Against what feminism means to him to which he answers: “Feminism to me, is synonymous with, like, common sense. I don’t think of it as something radical.”
Christina also interviews Judas Priest touring guitarist/producer Andy Sneap, Lzzy Hale of Halestorm as well as others. Check out the full documentary below!
