This documentary film directed by Andy Sommer tells Mahler's real story, going against any romanticized images we may have of the subject. The film places the spectator in Mahler's shoes. Using documented evidence (drawing on the latest research), it shows the world as he felt and experienced it. Mahler's portrait comes to life through places and objects of which he took possession: his conductor's podium, summer home, glasses, baton, musical score, and manuscripts. Artists include Bruno Walter, Willem Mengelberg, Leonard Bernstein, Claudio Abbado, Pierre Boulez, Daniele Gatti, Daniel Harding, and Jonathan Nott.
