Chassidy David                                           

Chassidy David is an artist and filmmaker. Her work is rooted in exploring the duality between invisibility and visibility, the unspoken ways trauma links us together, and how implicit biases shape narratives on and off the screen. Although her primary focus is narrative work, Chassidy often employs the foundational techniques of avant-garde and experimental cinema to subvert and obfuscate perceived realities. 

Her previous works have been showcased at film festivals such as New York Shorts IFFIFF Boston, Tallgrass Film Festival, and institutions such as MoMA (New York, NY) and the Museum of Moving Image (Queens, NY). 

Her recent credits include Flatbush Misdemeanors, Dead Ringers, and Missing First Period.

She is a recent graduate of Emerson College where she received her BFA in Film Production.
