Untold Story of the First All-Female Rock Band FANNY: THE RIGHT TO ROCK on DVD, Digital Aug. 9 from Film MovementSometime 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 sign with a major record label.

Yet, 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 now, with the feature-length documentary, FANNY – THE RIGHT TO ROCK.

From director Bobbi Jo Hart (Rebels on Pointe), FANNY, winner of the Rogers Audience Choice Award at Hot Docs, charts the group’s formation, their rise, fall, and more recent reformation 50 years after their founding with a new album release, and covers the misogyny, bigotry and other roadblocks they faced along the way.

Featuring 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.

BONUS FEATURES
- 5 featurettes with over 35 minutes of additional footage
