Director: Adam Davidson
Director Adam Davidson made THE LUNCH DATE while he was a student at New York’s Columbia University. The film went on to become a worldwide success. In 1990 it won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival for best short film, the Student Oscar from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, Outstanding New Director by the Directors Guild of America and, in 1991, the Academy Award Oscar for Best Short Film. The film explores ideas about fear and stereotyping through the story of a well-to-do white woman who is forced to confront her prejudice while stranded in a train station. Adam Davidson currently works in television where his credits include LAW AND ORDER (for which he received a DGA nomination) and LOST.
