Davis Guggenheim directed and executive-produced the 2007 Academy Award-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth, which featured former Vice President Al Gore and garnered worldwide box office receipts of more than $50 million. Guggenheim has been a producer and director on the Emmy Award-winning HBO series "Deadwood" as well as such critically acclaimedtelevision series as "The Unit," "The Shield," "Alias," "24," "NYPD Blue," "ER," and "Party of Five." He is the documentary filmmaker behind Norton Simon: A Man and His Art (on permanent exhibition at the Norton Simon Museum) and JFK and the Imprisoned Child (on permanent exhibition at the John F. Kennedy Library). After graduating from Brown, Guggenheim moved to Los Angeles to pursue filmmaking. He was executive producer for the film Training Day and director of Gossip, both released in 2001. In 2002, Guggenheim's documentary The First Year, which chronicled the challenges of novice public-school teachers in Los Angeles, won a Peabody Award in broadcast television and the Grand Jury Prize at the Full Frame Film Festival, the premiere U.S. documentary film festival. In 2007, Guggenheim directed the feature film Gracie, about a teenaged girl soccer player who overcomes family tragedy to play for her high school boys' team. The script was based on the real-life experience of Guggenheim's wife, actress Elisabeth Shue. Guggenheim's most recent feature documentary, It Might Get Loud, premiered at the 2008 Toronto Film Festival. It Might Get Loud explores the artistry of three great electric guitarists: Jimmy Page, The Edge and Jack White. This summer Guggenheim directed the Barack Obama bio film, A Mother's Promise, which played at the Democratic National Convention. He also contributed to the Barack Obama "infomercial."
