FANNY: THE RIGHT TO ROCK Director Bobbi Jo Hart Up Next on Tom Needham’s SOUNDS OF FILM

From director Bobbi Jo Hart (REBELS ON POINTE), FANNY: THE RIGHT TO ROCK, 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.

The program airs Thursday, June 2 from 6-8 PM.

Thursday, May 12 on Tom Needham's SOUNDS OF FILM: Dinesh D'Souza


In his newest film, Dinesh D'Souza takes the audience on a fascinating journey deep into the 2020 election. Although courts have never found any evidence of massive voter fraud, the film alleges that there was widespread illegal vote harvesting under the guise of "increased voter access," ultimately changing the course of the election.

The program airs Thursday, May 12 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.
