Antonia: A Portrait Of The Woman

The legacy of history's first female symphony conductor, Dr. Antonia Brico, is honored in this powerful and inspiring biographical film. A conductor, a teacher, and a pioneer in the world's concert halls, Dr. Brico forged through life boldly and unrepentantly. This Oscar-nominated documentary traces her struggle to overcome the "good old boy' sexual bias in her profession.

Written, produced and directed by the creative f-rces of singer/songwriter Judy Collins and filmmaker Jill Godmilow, this landmark 1974 documentary is enhanced tenfold by precious backstage footage of Brico in action, and celebrates the determination and accomplishments of a musical pioneer who broadened the criteria for success as a woman and an artist in America.

A fascinating blend of music, politics, romance, and memories, Antonia: A Portrait of the Woman exceeded the boundaries of the documentary genre by interweaving Dr. Brico's self-reflection with animation, and dramatically original editing.
