About the film

Young emerging jazz artist Darynn Dean loves jazz, but her love does not come without challenges; specifically regarding gender in jazz. Invited to the proverbial party, Darynn wonders if the boys-in-the band have a no-girls policy. The camera puts us front-and-center as Darynn digs to find the answer to the question, “Where is her-story in jazz?”. Engaging in vivid dialog with peers, educators, and award-winning jazz artists Jason Moran and Terri Lyne Carrington, she discusses obstacles and the hope-yet to come. Inspired by bell hooks’s book, All About Love: New Visions, which embraces freedom, inclusion, and universal love, Darynn commits herself to action by assembling the first ever “All-Women Cross Big Band” between the New England Conservatory of Music and Berklee College of Music.
