CinefestOZ – Suzi Q
31 August, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Suzi Q is a documentary that tells the story of trailblazing rock chick Suzi Quatro. The portrait of a strong young woman who changed the perception of women’s role in rock’n’roll music.
Join filmmakers and VIP guests for a welcome reception at the Augusta Margaret River Shire foyer prior to the premiere screening at the Margaret River HEART with a filmmaker Q&A to follow. Ticket includes a welcome drink and a few tasty treats.
Suzi Q is the definitive, unexpurgated story of the girl from Detroit City who redefined the role and image of women in rock’n’roll when she broke through around the world in 1973. Suzi Q positions Suzi as the trailblazer and inspiration for a generation of women rock musicians who were to follow in the next decade; and reminds contemporary audiences of her pioneering influence, white-hot talent and string of incandescent pop-rock hits. Testimony is duly made by a string of rock luminaries, with focus on the women who followed the roadmap Suzi charted for them.
Exiled in Europe by her success while largely forgotten in her homeland, we return with Suzi to Detroit. Suzi Q explores the long simmering family tensions and sibling rivalries that result from the success of one family member over its other talented members; as we reveal the price paid for success in a deeply personal exploration of fame, ambition and resilience.
Still on the road after 53 years, Suzi Quatro surely is The Queen Of Rock’n’Roll. Accept no substitutes.
