I love telling stories about family, the bigger the drama the funnier I find them. John Cassavetes is my favorite filmmaker; and I'm addicted to watching online dog videos.
ADAM CHRISTIAN CLARK
CAROLINE AND JACKIE, Adam Christian Clark's critically-acclaimed first feature film, premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival before receiving a US theatrical release.
Clark’s second feature film, NEWLY SINGLE was supported by the Sundance Institute Feature Film Program, and was honored by being only the third American movie to ever be invited into the main competition of the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival (PÖFF). Currently in the middle of its international festival run, the film is slated for a late 2018 release. Newly Single marks Clark’s first time acting in a feature film.
Clark’s directing career began in unscripted television. While still a student at University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts, he was hired to direct the hit CBS television show BIG BROTHER. Before focusing on narrative filmmaking, Clark also worked in commercials and music videos, was a roster director at A Band Apart, and a showrunner in both the US and China.
Originally from Seattle, Clark lives and works in downtown Los Angeles.
NY TIMES - The true indie mentality and style are reassuringly alive in 2013 in “Caroline and Jackie.” It captures the awkwardness, loneliness and unacknowledged desperation that haunt us all but that are particularly poignant when seen among attractive 30-somethings.
THE WALL STREET JOURNAL - Visually polished and emotionally raw.
VARIETY - Displaying nerves of steel and a generous heart, helmer Adam Christian Clark takes a lot of chances with “Caroline and Jackie,” a tale of troubled sisters that keeps the viewer off balance throughout before delivering a payoff that serves as both catharsis and absolution.
HOLLYWOOD REPORTER - Their relationship will ring true for many viewers, and Clark's intelligent handling of it should elicit good word-of-mouth at arthouses.
NY MAGAZINE - Top-Notch!
REUTERS - The plot is complex, the performances brilliant. First-time director Adam Christian Clark has made a compelling film.
VILLAGE VOICE - Sounds like family to us.
GENE SHALIT’S MOUSTACHE - It's the first time in awhile that a scripted, dramatic film was able to play with my senses; the way CAPTURING THE FRIEDMANS did, in documentary form.
