A woman who leads
María Elina Serrano writes a column in Argentina’s El País Digital about the film “The Conductor” based on the life of orchestra conductor Antonia Brico.
A woman who works is a woman who dreams. Who sees her future in a personal way, not a symbiotic way. Who plans her own destiny, who tries to train herself, to better herself, to pursue her dreams.
This is how the “other Antonias” are presented, other female conductors “who inspire everyone to make a deserved place for themselves in a complex world. Difficult, but not impossible”.
They include Veronika Borísovna Dudárova (Russia), Susanna Mälkki (Finland), Alondra de la Parra (Mexico), Lara Diloy Felipe (Spain) and Natalia Salinas (Argentina).
