Hear me roar…  

Join us for the Australian premiere of Adelaide Film Festival Investment Fund supported I Am Woman, the new biopic about legendary Australian singer and feminist icon, Helen Reddy, starring Adelaide’s own (not to forget, AFF poster-woman) Tilda Cobham-Hervey. Reddy arrived in New York in 1966 with her daughter, a suitcase, and $230. Her friendship with legendary rock journalist Lillian Roxon inspired the song that becomes an enduring anthem of the feminist movement. It also sparked an astounding career that resulted in 15 Top 40 hits.
