The Girls in the Band
Judy Chaikin, 2013
USA | English | 84 minutes

Director Judy Chaikin and producer Nancy Kissock in person for intro and Q&A at 7:00pm screening on Sunday, May 12!

The Girls in the Band tells the poignant, untold stories of female jazz and big band instrumentalists and their fascinating, groundbreaking journeys from the late 20s to the present day. These incredibly talented women endured sexism, racism and diminished opportunities for decades, yet continue today to persevere, inspire and elevate their talents in a field that seldom welcomed them.

Palm Springs International Film Festival, 2012: Winner, Audience Award

"Critics' Pick! The Girls in the Band is everything a worthwhile documentary should be, and then some: engaging, informative, thorough and brimming with delightful characters." —Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times

"A real crowdpleaser…may prompt a rewrite of jazz history." —Robert Koehler, Variety

"A fascinating, moving, and wonderfully tuneful documentary." —Mark Adams, Screen Daily

Venue: Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center
