Daniel Anker's Music From the Inside Out has been nominated in the feature documentary category, along with 13 other films, including Fahrenheit 9/11, Control Room, and Metallica: Some Kind of Monster. The film examines the lives of the orchestra's musicians, both inside and outside the ensemble, and probes the mysteries of music and musicianship.
More than 50 of the orchestra's musicians participated in the discussions and workshops from which the film's material is drawn. Music From the Inside Out was partly shot on location during the orchestra's recent tours to Europe and Asia, and while the musicians were at a summer residency at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center.
Anker was nominated for an Academy Award in 2000 for Scottsboro: An American Tragedy, which he produced.
Music From the Inside Out will have its international premiere at the Valladolid International Film Festival in Spain later this month.
