Official info about the film:

NL 2018, feature film, 135 min, DF
US-American Antonia Brico has only one goal in life:
She wants to become a conductor. But when she was a student in the 1920s, this ambition was virtually impossible. Ridiculed by both men and women for her dream, she makes her debut as conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra in 1930 despite all opposition, becoming the first female conductor in the world and paving the way for another generation of women to enter a profession that is still dominated by men today. Based on a true story.
Written & directed by Maria Peters, camera: Rolf Dekens
With: Christanne de Bruijn, Benjamin Wainwright, Richard Sammel, Annet Malherbe and others.
