The Leadership is Ili Baré’s debut feature documentary after making award-winning factual programmes including Becoming Superhuman, The Secret Life of Breasts , and The Silent Epidemic. 

In 2016, a collection of international women scientists set sail for Antarctica under the guidance of Australian leadership expert Fabian Dattner; what transpired is both inspiring and revelatory.

If they are to have an impact on our besieged world, these talented science, technology, engineering and mathematics professionals need to find a place at the leadership table. Dattner’s goal is to “help them step into the leaders they want to be.”

As they sail through the world’s last great wilderness, these inspirational women reveal the systemic and deeply personal challenges they face to maintain fulfilling careers in STEM. But the journey becomes a challenge for all on board, including Dattner, whose own leadership comes under unexpected scrutiny. How much do women need to change themselves in order to change the world? 

The Leadership is a potent, passionate documentary that is profoundly relevant in these #MeToo, Trump and COVID-19 times.
