Cinema Art Theater presents the documentary “Women Trailblazers in Music” | Culture & Leisure







The documentary “Women Trailblazers in Music” presents female composers through the centuries.



On March 24, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater will present “Women Trailblazers in Music,” a documentary created by award-winning pianist, composer, and now filmmaker Judith Lynn Stillman, about fascinating female composers spanning 12 centuries. A post-screening discussion will be moderated by Stillman.

The film takes the viewer on a journey with tunes and stories from – and about – pioneering female composers who have been virtually erased from history. It features seldom-heard stories and seldom-played music. More than two dozen famous artists appear in the film.

Actress Becky Bass stars as Florence Price, the first black female composer whose music is performed by a major symphony orchestra. Other cast members include Gamm Theater’s Jeanine Kane, Emmy Award-winning actress Kate Burton, cellist Aristides Rivas, sopranos Michelle Esposito and Mia Douglas, and Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra concertmaster Charles Dimmick. The 2021 film, made in the United States, is 55 minutes long and unrated.

Stillman said she wanted audiences to know that this movie is made up of world-class musicians – self-recording in isolation during the pandemic lockdown.

Screening time is 4 p.m. Thursday, March 24. Admission is $8 for members or $11 for non-members. Patrons are encouraged to purchase admission online at rehobothfilm.com. If seats are available, admission can be purchased at the theater from 30 minutes before each screening.
