One of the most honored films of its time and winner of an Academy Award, The Bolero captures the essence of an orchestra as Zubin Mehta conducts the Los Angeles Philharmonic in a stellar performance of Ravel's classic. Viewers gain insights into the music, the workings of a great orchestra, and leadership style and teamwork, all by observing a world renowned conductor in rehearsal and performance with a world class orchestra.

In Search of Cezanne is an exploration of the life and legacy of 19th century French painter Paul Cezanne, as seen through the eyes of a young female documentary filmmaker who is just discovering his work. Traveling from New York to Paris and Cezanne's hometown in the south of France, meeting scholars and family of Cezanne at each stop, her journey is a satisfying inquiry into artistic expression and its appreciation.

America's finest music documentarian, Allan Miller has produced films involving some of the most important musical events of the last two decades. He has made 35 documentaries about music, two of which have won Academy Awards - The Bolero, and From Mao To Mozart: Isaac Stern in China - plus an Emmy-winning documentary about classical violinist Itzhak Perlman. He also directed Small Wonders, which received an Academy Award nomination and was subsequently made into the feature length movie Music of the Heart, starring Meryl Streep.
