“Despite having had a very hard life, she was not at all tired. On the contrary – she was full of enthusiasm, passion and humor. And she was also full of plans. At the time of her death, we were planning a comeback concert with some of her original band members. I’m devastated, knowing I’ll never see her again, and I’m devastated for her family.”

Aridjis said she had been working with Luckey for the past three years on a documentary about her life and work.

“We were just getting ready to shoot the final scenes when she passed away tragically and unexpectedly,” Aridjis said. “As her collaborator, I am now more determined than ever to take her incredible story and great music out into the world.”

Aridjis said she crossed paths with the musical artist in a similar way to Demme, as Luckey drove a car service that Aridjis used in August 2019.

Aridjis said they ‘both felt that’ [their] meeting was destined” and started working on the document together.

Aridjis said, “Q had a spirit that was truly unique and irreplaceable, not just for her loved ones in their everyday lives, but for the creative community as a whole.

“I’m glad the world continues to hear her story in her own words and through her own songs—a precious task she has entrusted to me and for which I will be eternally grateful.”
