ABOUT MICHAEL MINER | DESIGNEDBYFRANKLLOYDWRIGHT.COM
Michael Miner is a documentary filmmaker from the United States. Since 2002, Miner has devoted his career entirely to the work of Frank Lloyd Wright, chronicling the master architect’s buildings in a series of films. Miner first established himself in Hollywood with the screening of the short film “Glycerine Tears” at the 1991 Sundance Film Festival. After that, Miner undertook mainly commercial projects for the next 10 years, detouring briefly to screen “Serial Killer” at the 1995 Sundance Film Festival. Desiring a hiatus from Hollywood, Miner embarked on two major road trips (the first in 1995), during which he visited Frank Lloyd Wright buildings all over America. These trips were the impetus for Miner’s next project – the documentation of Frank Lloyd Wright buildings. Miner’s first Wright film, Sacred Spaces, was completed in 2005 followed by A Child of the Sun, the story of the West Campus of Florida Southern College in Lakeland and finally, Romanza, which was released in 2011. Miner is currently completing work on his fourth film, Masterpieces.

In 2016,Michael launched The Frank Lloyd Wright Revival Initiative. The first project of the Initiative is to reconstruct the 1911 Banff National Park Pavilion, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and Francis Conroy Sullivan, Wright’s only Canadian student. The Pavilion will actually be the second Wright structure Miner has helped re-create. He oversaw the reconstruction of the Wright designed doghouse for his film “Romanza’ in 2011.
