The Girls In the Band = Women+music+film 2 C

7 05 2013

We recommend you hike over to Lincoln Center the end of this week (May 10 – 16) and enjoy a new award winning documentary on female jazz and big band instrumentalists – The Girls In the Band by Judy Chaikin

The trailer looks great and its a chance to see performances by artists you may have only heard about, like The International Sweethearts of Rhythm, the PV Coeds and the Parisian Red Heads.  To get heard they exploited the novelty value and endured the sexism, and it’s nice to see an important story told well.

It’s @ at the Beale Theater in the Elinor Bunin Monroe Film Center at Lincoln Center.
