DAVID L. CUNNINGHAM (Director) is an international filmmaker who has directed and produced a number of motion picture and television projects, literally around the globe. He was born in Lausanne, Switzerland to parents who work with an international university, and then raised on the Big Island of Hawai'i. Cunninham studied film and graduated with Bachelors'Degrees from both the University of the Nations and the University of Southern California (USC).

Starting out in documentaries David brought the first American crew to the most remote country in the world — Pitcairn Island — featured in the film MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY. He crossed the outback of Australia twice, followed teen prostitutes into the underbelly of Los Angeles, filmed from camelback in the deserts of Egypt and had countless other filmmaking adventures. He has traveled to 135 countries on every continent, earning him a membership in the prestigious Traveler's Century Club, whose members must have traveled to more than 100 nations.

David's first feature, BEYOND PARADISE, dealt with the modern-day culture clash in Hawaii from a teen's perspective. David's second feature, TO END ALL WARS, set during WWII and starring Kiefer Sutherland and Robert Carlyle is the true story of allied prisoners who start a secret university in a Japanese POW camp. A critical and global success, it was picked up by Goldcrest and 20th Century Fox. TO END ALL WARS caught the attention of Hollywood and launched David's career beyond the independent feature world.

Last year, David directed the $40 million, epic six-hour mini-series for Disney and ABC THE PATH TO 9/11, starring Harvey Keitel and based upon the 9/11 Commission Report. Filmed on location in Toronto, New York, Washington DC, and throughout the villages and deserts of Morocco, this story deals with the controversy of how and why the events of 9/11 took place. PATH aired to a combined total of 25 million viewers and was recently nominated for seven Emmys.

David makes his home on the Big Island of Hawai'i with his wife and three children.
