*Documentarian William Miles, whose films include 1981’s “I Remember Harlem” and 1992’s “Liberators: Fighting on Two Fronts in World War II,” died May 12 in New York, according to the NY Times. He was 82.
In 1977 the Harlem native made his first documentary “Men Of Bronze,” about the all-black 369th Infantry Regiment sent to fight alongside the French in WWI, after himself serving in the National Guard.
“Liberators,” co-directed with Nina Rosenblum, recounted the story of black soldiers who helped to liberate Nazi concentration camps and was nominated for an Oscar.
He earned a CableACE nomination for 1993’s “The Untold West” and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Association of Independent Video and Filmmakers.
