在一片由男性 DJ 主宰的電音市場裡，本片導演於 2012 年發起「嗆妹」(Raw Chicks)平台，每週安排來自全世界的女 DJ 於人氣夜店 RAW Tempel 輪番上陣，從極簡電音傳思至純種噪音，從露天舞台到室內的迷離光霧，以全光譜樂種突破對電子音樂的既有想像。4 年後，導演以鏡頭再次捕捉這群由她一手促成的柏林嗆妹們，11 位女 DJ 重新詮釋她們對聲響的迷戀，對現場演出的執著，與柏林僅有、視與聽合一的前衛。
Raw Chicks. Berlin shows eleven multifaceted portraits of international Berlin-based female music producers with a focus on live acts. The music spectrum ranges from experimental, via noise-based electronic, to electro-acoustic music. The documentary gives an insight into the diverse and lively current music scene of Berlin and creates a time document, supplementing the often male-dominated historiography by a female perspective.

Often people think, electronic music is just techno or house. With the film I wanted to show what electronic music can be, what wide range of music is out there, what we have found over the last years doing our RAW CHICKS events in Berlin. Through these regular party and concert events in very different locations I got to know all these, in my opinion, very inspiring musicians I have in the film now. Those eleven women featured in my documentary, are part of a much larger, vivid scene who can be found performing on Berlin's open air stages and in the city's clubs, concert halls, galleries and art spaces and I could have easily added many more portraits showing different ranges of this kind of music to my film.
Because I have never seen a film about this wide range of electronic music I felt it is time to do it and with the knowledge that women do not show up to the same extent as men in line-ups of music festivals and other musical events, I wanted to do this film exclusively with women in electronic music.
