“Queer women should be equally as strong and loud as gay boys,” says Matt Lambert, the Berlin-based American filmmaker behind the video for Evvol’s new single ‘Release Me’. “They should be powerful in their sexuality and not hidden in the way some people perceive queer women to be.”

Using a documentary style to look at the lives of a group of queer women in Berlin, the video challenges the lack of representation this group faces in the mainstream media. Having focused in the past on young men approaching adulthood, Matt’s experience of presenting the complex worlds of intimacy, gender and identity has helped him create a vivid and vital depiction of the force of nature that is Evvol’s Berlin community.

Co-director Julie Chance of Evvol agrees: “On a personal level, my main problem with different types of media is I don’t see people like myself represented on screen and I think it’s really important to address this.”
