SQ On Air #6: I Am Woman: The Making of an Icon

Hear from Goalpost Picture’s Rosemary Blight and screenwriter Emma Jensen about the upcoming Stan Original Film I Am Woman, about the life, loves, and career of Australian music and feminist icon, Helen Reddy.

Reddy would become one of the biggest superstars of her time, and her eponymous song I Am Woman was the first number one hit on the Billboard charts by an Australian-born artist and the first Australian-penned song to win a Grammy Award. Her song would define a generation and be an anthem of the women’s liberation movement for years to come.

Starring Tilda Cobham-Hervey as the singer-songwriter, Danielle Macdonald as Lillian Roxon, and Evan Peters and Jess Wald, and directed by Unjoo Moon.

I Am Woman would come to reflect the challenges of the Australian film industry in a post-COVID world, as it was due to open the 2020 Gold Coast Film Festival before the festival’s unfortunate cancellation in March. It’s since found new life as a Stan Original Film and premiered on the streaming service on 28th August 2020.

The development of I Am Woman was supported by Screen Queensland.
