Suzi Q plus Q & A at GFT
8 October, 2-19 at 8.20 p.m.
Trailblazer. Inspirator, Survivor. 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 out around the world in 1973.
The trailblazer and inspiration for a generation of female rock musicians who followed her, new documentary Suzi Q reminds contemporary audiences of her pioneering influence, white-hot talent and string of incandescent pop-rock hits. Testimony is duly made by a host of rock luminaries, with focus on the women who followed the roadmap Suzi charted for them.
Exiled to Europe during her success yet now largely forgotten in her homeland, we return with Suzi to Detroit. Exploring the long simmering family tensions and sibling rivalries that result from the success of one family member, this documentary reveals the price paid for success in a deeply personal exploration of fame, ambition and resilience.
Still on the road after 50 years, Suzi Quatro surely is The Queen of Rock’n’Roll. Accept no substitutes.
Followed by a Q&A with Suzi Quatro
GFT 12 Rose Street, G3 6RB
