Chassidy David                                       

Chassidy David is a multidisciplinary artist and filmmaker passionate about creating stories that navigate memory, social cognition, and psycho-cinematics. Her work is deeply rooted in exploring the psychology of suppression and the duality between hyper-visibility and hyper-invisibility. Although she often works in the narrative space, Chassidy often employs the foundational techniques of avant-garde and experimental cinema within her work.

Her previous works have been showcased at film festivals such as New York Shorts IFF, IFF Boston, Tallgrass Film Festival, and institutions such as MoMA (New York, NY) and the Museum of Moving Image (Queens, NY). She has also worked as a programmer on Dedza’s omnibus, Who Will Start Another Fire.

Her recent credits include, You Lucky You Got A Mama, Flatbush Misdemeanors, Dead Ringers, and Missing First Period.

She holds her BFA in Film Production from Emerson College.

currently based in: Brooklyn, NY
