Davis Guggenheim is a critically acclaimed, Academy Award-winning director and producer, whose early work includes many television dramas such as Deadwood, NYPD Blue and 24. He transitioned into directing non-fiction films with The First Year, which aired on PBS in 2001 and won a Peabody Award. An Inconvenient Truth, featuring former Vice President Al Gore, was theatrically distributed by Paramount in 2006, won an Academy Award for Best Documentary. It Might Get Loud, featuring Jimmy Page, The Edge and Jack White was theatrically distributed by Sony Pictures Classics in 2009. Guggenheim also directed Barack Obama’s biographical film for the 2008 Democratic National Convention, as well as Obama’s 30-minute primetime infomercial.

Guggenheim’s Waiting for Superman premiered at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival and took home the Best US Documentary Audience Award. It was released in September 2010 by Paramount and has since won the Gotham Festival Genius Award, as well as the PGA Award, Critics’ Choice Award, and the National Board of Review Award. The contrasting power and tragedy of American school has long been a focus for Guggenheim. His debut documentary, 1999’s THE FIRST YEAR, chronicled the tales of five first year teachers in some of America’s toughest schools and went on to garner international accolades and a Peabody Award. Now, a decade later, with his own kids in private schools, Guggenheim was spurred to see what had changed in the battered public system. What he found both shocked and exhilarated him as he discovered both outrageous, unconscionable behavior and real signs of hope, signs for which American families are hungry.

To tell that story, Guggenheim knew he would need to strip away the distracting partisan politics and divisive power struggles that, too often, have made American schools seem beyond all likelihood of repair. He wanted to bust completely out of that despairing mold, and instead take an invigorating, entertaining approach to telling the thrilling story of how a few fiery reformers are finding creative ways to save a failing system, and the kids trapped inside it, right in front of our eyes.
