a portrait series for the web: global, in four languages -
each portrait is 4 – 5 min. long 
-
informative, insightful and contemporary
 -

This web series launches with 10-15 clips = portraits, and will first air on the (new) online platforms of ZDF KULTUR and the Goethe Institutes worldwide; they will share and circulate LEADING WOMEN via social media in four languages: after the launch in 2019 other platforms and media will contribute to further circulation. 

The tenor of these clips is not one of superlatives: it’s not about “conquering the world” or the most important positions, largest turnovers etc. it’s a quieter portrait: more personal in the differentiation of each portrayed woman and her responsibilities.

The global range of the narratives and the broad scope of these leading positions and responsibilities is what makes this series noteworthy and unique. We do not wish to portray celebrities, but, through the comparability of the reports, learn something in around five minutes about the world today and our future. Our ability to do this is what will make the series important and secure its place as a new international platform.
