Michael Henry Wilson | Documentarian, 67
One of Mr. Wilson's best-known films was A Personal Journey With Martin Scorsese Through American Movies, which he codirected with Scorsese. In a review, Los Angeles Times film critic Kenneth Turan said the 1995 film "takes its place as one of the very few essential documentaries on the American film experience."
Mr. Wilson was born in Paris and came to Los Angeles in the early 1980s.
His last completed documentary was a departure in that it was not about movies. The 2010 Reconciliation: Mandela's Miracle includes interviews with not only antiapartheid leaders Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu, but also with former supporters of the oppressive South African policy. - L.A. Times
