Peter Miller’s award-winning documentaries include the theatrically released A.K.A. Doc Pomus, Jews and Baseball: An American Love Story, and Sacco and Vanzetti. With Carlos Sandoval, he directed the Latino civil rights documentary, A Class Apart, which was recently acquired by Eva Longoria to become a feature film. With Renée Silverman, he produced, directed and shot Sosúa: Make a Better World, about a theater project uniting Jewish and Latino teenagers, and Refugee Kids: One Small School Takes on the World, now in film festivals.

His musical film, The Internationale, was short-listed for an Academy Award nomination. A long-time producer for Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, he’s served in various producing roles on PBS programs including Jazz, The War, and the Peabody Award-winning Frank Lloyd Wright.

Peter’s latest film, Projections of America, tells a story of how documentary film can help us imagine a better world – a goal he aspires to in his own filmmaking work.
