A highly acclaimed new Australian documentary from the producers of Sweet Country, The Leadership is the fascinating and unpredictable account of the 2016 maiden voyage of Homeward Bound. An intensive leadership initiative for women in STEMM fields, it brought together 76 scientists on a maritime journey to Antarctica, with larger-than-life ‘leadership expert’ Fabian Dattner as their guide. Designed to transform the participants into “the sort of leaders they want to be”, Dattner’s confrontational, corporate-focused coaching style immediately faces criticism from the highly intelligent group, who have their own concepts of what a leader should be. Director Ili Baré and her small crew capture this unique environment with great sensitivity and agility, adapting to the fast-moving situation on board as tensions boil over. Beautifully shot against the stunning Antarctic backdrop, this is a highly absorbing reflection on the meaning of good leadership.
Why You Should See This Film
On paper, The Leadership might seem like a straight-forward documentary about women in leadership. But it becomes so much more than that. The group dynamic on board takes a seriously jaw-dropping turn that will leave you praising the documentary overlords that there was a film crew present to capture all the juicy details. Intimate, intelligent and thought-provoking, this is a film worth celebrating.
