  • Filmmaker Michael Roemer left his native Germany during WWII and lived in England until 1945 when he emigrated to the United States. He was attending Harvard when he made an auspicious directorial debut with his comedy-fantasy feature A Touch of the Times (1949). Following graduation, Roemer spent eight years working with Louis De Rochemont as a production manager, film editor, and assistant director. He went on to make short educational films and one unreleased full-length documentary, Cortile Cascino, before making his fictional feature-film debut, Nothing But a Man, in 1964. An honest and realistic view of the modern African-American experience, it earned two awards at the following year's Venice Film Festival and earned him considerable critical acclaim in France. His next film, The Plot Against Harry, finished filming in 1969, but was not released until 1989. It too garnered him widespread praise. In addition to making features, Roemer has also occasionally made films for television, including Haunted (1984).
