Production of a thirty-minute film about Elayne Jones, a pioneering percussionist who challenged racial and gender stereotypes in classical music.

INSTRUMENTAL is a 30-minute documentary about Elayne Jones, who broke through racial and gender barriers in classical music but paid a personal toll for fighting against a culture of exclusivity. The film accompanies this 93-year-old African American timpanist as she reflects on the difference she’s made and the work that remains to be done. A collaboration between feminist documentary filmmaker Julie Wyman and American Studies scholar Grace Wang, INSTRUMENTAL is a critical, historical, and creative media research project that tells the story of Jones’s life, work, and fight for inclusion in classical music.
