ANCHORAGE — An Oscar-nominated filmmaker who directed and produced a documentary detailing a 1925 sled dog run in Alaska to deliver life-saving serum has died.
Daniel Anker died Monday at age 50 of pneumonia, a complication of his lymphoma.
‘‘Icebound,’’ details the run to Nome after a deadly diphtheria outbreak. The film opened the Anchorage International Film Festival in December.
Mr. Anker was nominated for an Academy Award in 2001 for another documentary, ‘‘Scottsboro: An American Tragedy.’’
