What precedes the viewer's feeling that something unusual is waiting for him? Why is it enough for one conductor to appear on the stage and only their presence electrifies the air? Why is “conducting a dark business”? What could groundhog day look like? Conduction is a fascinating immersion into the atmosphere of one of the most mysterious musical professions, a film-observation of the work of one of the most unusual contemporary conductors Teodor Currentzis. Stravinsky is replaced by Mozart, then Jean-Philippe Rameau, Jiri Kilian's dance. Step by step enters the world, usually not visible from the auditorium. Frame is strung on frame, sound on sound, word for word, and suddenly you feel immersed in an amazing creative process. And at the same time, you realize that the basis of this being is work. Not hard labor, not monotonous, but beautiful, but at the limit of possibilities.
