I Am Woman tells the inspiring story of singer Helen Reddy, who co-wrote and sang the song ‘I Am Woman’. Her Grammy-winning hit became an anthem for the women's movement in the 1970s.  

The film tells a story of fearless ambition and passion, of a woman who smashed through the patriarchal norms of her time to become the international singing superstar she always dreamed of being. 

In celebration of International Women’s Day, join us for this screening. The film showcases the work of many talented Australians – including stars Tilda Cobham-Hervey and Danielle Macdonald, producer Rosemary Blight, writer Emma Jensen, cinematographer Dion Beebe and first-time dramatic feature director Unjoo Moon.  

Nominated for 9 AACTA Awards in 2020 including Best Picture and Best Actress. 

‘The power of her music and the enduring struggle of women makes the film resonate’ – Little White Lies
