    • Synopsis
    • Conductivity is a film about creative leadership told through the story of three young conductors; I-Han Fu from Taiwan, Emilia Hoving from Finland and James
      Kahane from France. They study orchestral conduction in the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, Finland.
      We follow them on their rocky road, where tension, anxieties and elements out of their control can create insurmountable obstacles.
      The film addresses the theme of leadership by looking at communication: What creates authority? What sort of characteristics make a person a leader? Can one decide to be a leader or is it for others to decide? What kind of meaning can a look or its absence convey? A good leader is strong without being gruff, friendly without being weak, humble without being fearful. Leadership means bringing out your own vision and making it real so it is conveyed to the world around you. Conductor training, in essence, is leadership training.
