Nancy Kissock

Like the Librarian’s Blend from Intelligentsia, Nancy Kissock comes to us from Los Angeles and has a bold base with a bit of sparkle. After speaking with her at the Women+Film Festival, I felt reassured that the direction of women in male dominated industries is moving in the right direction—even if the steps are small and the pace is slow.

Kissock produced The Girls in the Band, a film that reveals the fascinating history of female big band and jazz muscians who endured sexism, racism and diminished opportunities for decades, yet continued to persevere, inspire and elevate their talents in a field that seldom welcomed them.
