The Conductor. A conversation with the documentary director Bernadette Wegenstein


What can documentary storytelling teach us about existing gaps in gender equality? Take inspiration from the story of musical pioneer Marin Alsop. The Conductor explores Marin's life of firsts. The first woman to serve as music director of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. The first to conduct the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra. How has she overcome existing inequalities? And, as a result, what steps can we all take to narrow the gender gap?

In cooperation with This Human World film festival

Participants of the Forum will have the opportunity to view the documentary on a virtual platform between 23-25 October or on-site in Brussels at the Forum on 25 October. A Non-Theatrical Community Event Screening.
