'Here Is What Is' is a sonic journey to the source of the art in the recording studio. It is an invitation to experience a year of creation, looking over Daniel Lanois' shoulder. The songs featured throughout the film are true to the dedication of documenting a live take off the floor. Garth Hudson, one of Canada's National treasures opens the film with a timeless piano performance. Lanois takes us with him to Morocco to philosophize with his old friend Brian Eno and to record in a stunning courtyard with U2. Daniel joins Brian Blade in Shreveport at his Father's Zion Baptist Church for a roaring rendition of 'This May Be The Last Time'. Adam Vollick captures a rare Lanois performance mix in a voyeuristic, magic carpet ride above the console, while Daniel explains his moves and musical reasons for making them. His psychedelic past emerges throughout the film as the hyperrealism of the in-studio documentation is contrasted by moments of wild fantasia.
