“The conversation about women’s place is right smack dab in the middle of rock ‘n’ roll.” —Fanny drummer, Alice de Buhr

Hard rock was on the rise in the late 60s, and Fanny, a California group that included Filipina-American sisters, impressed everyone with their heavy beats and blistering musical chops. They possessed musicianship, ambition and a major label record deal. So why did they end up on so many lists of the “best forgotten bands,” including that of David Bowie? FANNY: The Right to Rock tells the story of a 70s rock band like no other—all-female, with Asian-American and LGBTQ+ members—who struggled to overcome the limitations of an industry and a society hellbent on painting them into a hyper-sexualized corner. Filmmaker Bobbi Jo Hart pulls the action into the present day and follows the women of Fanny as they confront aging and ageism, and inspire new generations of musicians. -TA
