Described as "engaging, informative, thorough and brimming with delightful characters" by New York Times reviewer, Jeannette Catsoulis, The Girls in the Band is a documentary about the sexism in Jazz ensembles during the 1930s and 40s. Many women were excluded from all-male bands during this time, but they moved on to create their own all-female bands. The film follows the lives of female jazz players who worked during the 1930s and 40s and reveals their gripping stories.
The Girls in the Band will be screened on Tuesday, March 4 at 7:00 pm in the Weitz Cinema.
