Joana Mallwitz - Momentum

Germany2024documentary88'International DocFilmMusic Competition

Men in the music business are never asked about how they can juggle a career and a family. The film character, who conducts the best European orchestras, explains that the most important thing is to have a good team – both in the family and at work. Joana Mallwitz is filmed over the breakthrough period of two years when her son is born and her career considerably speeds up. Regardless of whether she stays at home, at rehearsals or in the limelight, the German conductor tries to prove that finding the right rhythm in life is at least equally important as perfection.
