About the Film

In 2008, Maestra Marin Alstrop became the first woman in history to lead a major orchestra. Her inspiring journey from child violinist to sought-after conductor--passionate about opening the door behind her for other underrepresented voices in classical music--is chronicled in this beautiful film. THE CONDUCTOR captures Alstrop’s incredible musical powers through great orchestral performances, and offers great insight into the dedication, artistic drive, mentorship and altruism that guided her through extreme adversity and persistent sexism in her field. "It’s a triumphant film about overcoming discrimination and realizing one’s talent against all odds." —Lucy Mukerjee, Tribeca Film Festival
