In the 1960s, an all-female rock band was making a name for themselves in the music scene…and their name was Fanny. With their long hair, rocking stage presence, and incredible instrumentation skills, Fanny was unlike any other girl group before them. But despite their unmatched talent and groundbreaking music, Fanny never quite broke through. With lesbian and Filipino members, the band failed to fit the desired “image” of the time. And with a lack of support, the group eventually fell apart. Decades later, Fanny’s lasting legacy has paved the way for female musicians across a variety of genres. Throughout their career, the women in Fanny have battled sexism, racism, and homophobia. Now in their 60s, back together and releasing a new album, “Fanny Walked the Earth,” the badass chicks in Fanny are tackling ageism as well. A powerful documentary featuring interviews with a swath of legendary music icons including Bonnie Raitt, Todd Rundgren, The Go-Go’s Kathy Valentine, and The B52’s Kate Pierson, FANNY: THE RIGHT TO ROCK will have you dancing in your seat. —G.S.
