Fanny: The Right to Rock
An unmissable insight into rock 'n' roll's most underappreciated icons.
Thoroughly engaging thanks to the demonstratable talent and brassy forthrightness of its central personalities.
A breakthrough documentary chronicling the story of pioneering female rock band, Fanny. Essentially erased from the musical canon, the women of Fanny seek the recognition for their contribution to rock and roll, and music history more broadly. Navigating the challenges of race, sexuality, gender as well as a new found barrier of ageism in a hostile music industry, Fanny reunites after nearly 45 years apart. Showcasing the womens' lives, from touring to recording to their notorious queer studio and home, Fanny Hill.
Fanny: The Right to Rock features archival footage and images from the mid-60s through to the late 70s and interviews from rock and roll heavy hitters including Bonnie Raitt, Kate Pierson (The B52's), Kathy Valentine (The Go Go's), Joe Elliot (Def Leppard) & Cherie Currie (The Runaways).
