The official Suzi Quatro feature documentary “SUZI Q”, the definitive, unexpurgated story of the girl from Detroit City who redefined the role and image of women in rock’n’roll, will have its virtual theatrical event release on July 1st (with Suzi Quatro, Cherie Currie and Kathy Valentine) and release on DVD and VOD on July 3rd.
From Australian filmmakers Liam Firmager and Tait Brady, “SUZI Q” charts the 54-year career of the pioneering female rocker, positioning Suzi as the trailblazer and inspiration for a generation of women who were to follow after her in the next decade, but whose trailblazing status was not sufficiently recognized by the music industry and contemporary audiences, especially in North America. “SUZI Q” reminds contemporary audiences of her pioneering influence, white-hot talent and string of incandescent rock hits, like CAN THE CAN, 48 CRASH and DAYTONA DEMON that were the vehicle for her explosion of gender stereotypes in rock n roll, rewriting the rule book for the expected image of women in rock music and reaching millions of people worldwide in the process.
“SUZI Q” features interviews with Suzi Quatro, Alice Cooper, Deborah Harry (Blondie), Joan Jett, Cherie Currie (The Runaways), Tina Weymouth (Talking Heads), Donita Sparks (L7), Henry Winkler (Happy Days), Kathy Valentine (The GoGo’s), KT Tunstall, members of the Quatro family, and many more.
With theaters closed, Utopia Distribution will host a “SUZI Q” virtual event on July 1st featuring the film and an exclusive Q&A featuring Suzi Quatro and a Special Guest (available for 24 hours only) in advance of the film’s traditional release on VOD and DVD on July 3rd.
