About the Film
The Conductor takes the audience into the heart of classical music, and into the soul of one of its top, most beguiling artists, the internationally renowned conductor Marin Alsop.
Born in New York, Marin Alsop first saw the legendary Leonard Bernstein when she was nine-years old. At that moment, she knew what she wanted to be in life: a conductor. Told that girls can’t do that, Marin struggled against enormous prejudices and institutional obstacles for decades to become one of the world’s most renowned classical music conductors. The Conductor follows Marin’s improbable rise and her single-minded pursuit to achieve her dream. Using music conducted by Alsop herself, the director has created an emotional documentary, with a score that compliments the high and low points of the conductor’s life, perfectly mirroring the character’s interior landscape.
