Sometime in the 1960s, in sunny Sacramento, two Filipina-American
sisters got together with other teenage girls to play music. Little
did they know their garage band would evolve into the legendary rock
group Fanny, the first all-women band to release an LP with a major
record label (Warner/Reprise, 1970). Despite releasing 5
critically-acclaimed albums over 5 years, touring with famed bands
from SLADE to CHICAGO and amassing a dedicated fan base of music
legends including David Bowie, Fanny's groundbreaking impact in music
was written out of history... until bandmates reunite 50 years later
with a new rock record deal. With incredible archival footage of the
band's rocking past intercut with its next chapter releasing a new LP
today, the film includes interviews with a large cadre of music icons,
including Def Leppard's Joe Elliott, Bonnie Raitt, The Go-Go's Kathy
Valentine, Todd Rundgren, The Runaways' Cherie Currie, Lovin'
Spoonful's John Sebastian, The B52's Kate Pierson, Charles Neville and
David Bowie guitarist and bassist Earl Slick and Gail Ann Dorsey.
Fighting early barriers of race, gender and sexuality in the music
industry, and now ageism, the incredible women of Fanny are ready to
claim their hallowed place in the halls of rock 'n' roll fame.
