“The mystery of the recording studio is what keeps me coming back. Many rewards have come to me through this laboratory. It is my temple, my domain, my frustration and my love. But most importantly, it is my place of innovation,” says Daniel Lanois in his first feature film, Here Is What Is. The film captures Lanois in the past year and a half by camera man Adam Vollick, showing the producer philosophizing with old friend Brian Eno, sitting in with Brian Blade in the deep South to perform “This May Be the Last Time” and in the studio mixing, explaining to the imaginary audience his moves and the musical reasons behind them. Guest appearances include Garth Hudson, U2, Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Aaron Neville, Billy Bob Thornton and others.

The film debuted last month at the Toronto International Film Festival.
