MICHAEL LEHMANN (Director) made an auspicious feature film directorial debut with the acclaimed black comedy "Heathers," starring Christian Slater and Winona Ryder.

A San Francisco native, Lehmann studied art at the University of California at Berkeley and went on to receive a degree in philosophy from Columbia University.

Lehmann worked with Francis Ford Coppola at Zoetrope Studios, supervising experimental video systems used in the films "One From the Heart," "Rumble Fish" and "The Outsiders." He then studied filmmaking at the University of Southern California, receiving his degree in 1985.

While attending USC Lehmann directed the short films "Beaver Gets a Boner," and for "Saturday Night Live," "Ed's Secret Life." He received considerable industry attention for both shorts leading to a deal at New World Pictures where he developed "Heathers."

Following this, Lehmann co­wrote and directed "Meet the Applegates." He also directed "Hudson Hawk," "Airheads" and last year's hit "The Truth About Cats and Dogs."
