LOS ANGELES SCREENING–FANNY: The Right to Rock

October 1 @ 7:00 pm10:00 pm

Fanny The Right to Rock by MA photo of three members of the band playing their instruments.

 

LOS ANGELES ASIAN PACIFIC FILM FESTIVAL–David Bowie was quoted in saying “Revivify Fanny. And I feel my work will be done.” An affecting documentary, FANNY: THE RIGHT TO ROCK carries on the work that one of their biggest supporters started and is a definitive proclamation on the significance of one of the most under-appreciated bands in rock music history. This is the untold story of a self-founded, 1960s garage band — which included Filipina American and queer bandmates — that morphed into the ferocious rock group Fanny, the first band of women to release an LP with a major record label (Warner/Reprise, 1970).

As this film eagerly illustrates, Fanny’s music and legacy left a lasting impact on those who witnessed them in their formative years. The film is more than “sex, drugs, and rock and roll,” much more than a band’s rise and fall, and even more than a statement on the proverbial glass ceiling. FANNY: THE RIGHT TO ROCK doesn’t just celebrate a career, but it corrects a historical oversight. The film writes what was written out, but also leaves a blank page for the band to write their own ending. — Joel Quizon
