The documentary film CONDUCTIVITY, directed by Anna-Karin Grönroos, wins the main prize in Tampere Film Festival in category of Over 30 Minutes documentaries. The National Jury was fascinated by it’s sensitive tone and said the film to be: “in tune with the emotions and senses of its protagonists”.
Conductivity is a film about creative leadership told through the story of three young conductors at the prestigious Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, Finland; I-Han Fu (Taiwan), Emilia Hoving (Finland) and James Kahane (France). When stepping on the podium, they are put under a magnifying glass. Conductor training, in essence, is leadership training. The film gives a unique viewpoint to follow the students, as this is the first film about conductor training at the Sibelius Academy.
