I have been watching “The Girls in the Band” project for quite a while now and I am beyond excited that it is finally available for purchase. I am especially pleased that the purchase includes “use of all materials for classrooms, as well as the rights to screen the film for the life of the DVD on your campus or library grounds,” as long as you don’t charge a viewing fee. They must know a librarian!
From the Website: Now Available to Universities, Libraries, and High Schools A New York Times Critics’ Pick! The award-winning documentary film THE GIRLS IN THE BAND tells the poignant, untold stories of female jazz and big band instrumentalists and their fascinating, history-making journeys from the late 30s to the present day. The many first-hand accounts of the challenges faced by these talented women provide a glimpse into decades of racism and sexism that have existed in America.
