SUZI Q Makes The LA Weekly Top 10 Documentaries of 2020
Updated: Jul 13, 2022
Here we are, barely a fortnight into 2021 and SUZI Q continues to be noticed by the who's who of entertainment media.
This time, from the renowned LA Weekly publication. LA Weekly is the definitive source of information for news, music, movies, restaurants, reviews and events in Los Angeles.
For those who completely fell asleep at the wheel in 2020, as memorable years go, let's just say that 2020 was arguably the one of least memorable or exciting years by any metric of memorable that most people would have had. Virtually every industry slowed to a grinding halt with only those businesses and services who were deemed 'essential' by the government remaining open and in operation whilst everyone else was stuck at home discovering Zoom and annihilating their monthly internet data usage.
Casting this depressiveness aside, 2020 was actually a fantastic year for our feature music documentary SUZI Q.
Before Suzi Quatro burst on the music world in 1973, there were almost no women in rock, and absolutely none who played bass and sang lead vocals and led the band and rocked out and reached millions of people around the world, re-writing the rule book for the expected image of women in rock & roll.
Singer, songwriter, bass player, bandleader, actress, radio-presenter, poet – there is only one Suzi Q, the pint-sized, leather-clad rocker who has sold more than 50 million records and in 2019 released a new album, celebrating 53 years as a working musician.
Our film was due for a theatrical release in July of 2020 throughout the USA, but unfortunately this was not able to be done due to the dismal reasons mentioned above. In the true spirit of Suzi Quatro, nothing was going to stop this film from getting out there, so an online Video-On-Demand premiere took place followed by general release across the USA on some of the biggest streaming platforms around.
The market took notice and SUZI Q was written and spoken about by some of the biggest news and entertainment publications and shows in the country. The amount of media attention it received more than made up for the unfortunate cancellation of the national theatrical release.
As an extra added bonus for us in 2021, as mentioned, the renowned LA Weekly publication has just released their Top 10 Documentaries List of 2020. We are absolutely thrilled to see that SUZI Q has come in at Number 3 on this prestigious list.
All the more reason to purchase, rent or stream this multi-award-winning film, SUZI Q.
