A Film by Bernadette Wegenstein (in production, 2020)
A documentary film about female orchestral conductors, We Conduct focuses mainly on Marin Alsop, the music director of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. As the first woman to conduct a prominent American orchestra, Alsop has been a trailblazer in her field: in an industry dominated by men, she has become a leader and figurehead in the field, even mentoring young conductors including Jonathan Rush and Sumaya Elkashif.
The women of We Conduct show an extreme love for their craft, dedicating their whole lives to their orchestras. Currently in the final stages of post-production, the film is slated for release in 2020.
