Director Biography - Joshua David

Writer-Director Joshua David is a multifaceted artist and award-winning filmmaker with a passion for connective storytelling with layered perspective. From a remarkably early age, he developed proficiency in speaking, reading, writing, music, and art. His most important development, however, is his heart for people, which drives him to use film and every other medium he can as a means to connect with people on an intimately and viscerally human level. His goal as a thought-provoking and heart-tugging storyteller is to use his disposition in film and culture to establish projects that illuminate art at the intersection of the mind and the soul.
