LONG-06. Maestra

US, Feature Documentary, 2023, 88 min

… the dark side of the classical music world…very few conductors of major orchestras are women. The Hollywood Reporter

Executive produced by David Letterman. A flick of her wand can raise an ocean of sound and a look in her eye can command an army. Why are women only 3% of the conductors of world’s major orchestras? Times are changing. In spring, 14 strong, gifted women gather in Paris to show the world the great talent that drives them - in what has long been considered the exclusive province of men. Over 4 days, mothers, daughters and leaders will take to the stage – in high drama – to compete in La Maestra, the only competition in the world for female conductors.

Directed by Maggie Contreras
